Will furloughed employees be paid?

Are Federal Government employees who got furloughed during the government shutdown going to get paid?

Didn't the House vote 407-0 to pay them? What did the Senate do?

Is this a way to prevent rebellion by thousands of Federal Government workers? You furlough them, and then you pay them? Isn't that a government-paid vacation?

And just "who" is the government? You know - who coughs up the money to run the government? YOU do...

Who knows whether the Federal employees suffered only a little anxiety, and no income loss, during the "shutdown"?
