This is purely a hypothetical question, but it reminds of the question, what really matters most in life? So many people seem to be worried about a possible government shutdown. But is it really that bad? Farmers grow our food. Truckers move our products around. What do politicians do for us that we rely on? If we had to choose, which one could we do without?

I usually don't disagree with answers, but I find it to be almost a moral imperative to disagree with this one. Politicians are legislators and of course Jimmy Stewart's character was a politician. Legislators hammer out laws daily for our protection
If they don't do there job (like right now) they should get NO pay.
This makes me terribly sad. My experience is in volunteering for sincere legislators who hammer out laws that protect us,especially at the state level. I've seen TTYs put into airports so deaf people could call home,on and on and on. Hard battles won
