Today, via Twitter:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler ‏@RepHartzler

Am voting now to ensure furloughed federal employees get paid for time lost due to the govn. slowdown. This will help 800,000 people. 7:55 AM – 5 Oct 13

Uh, do you think that maybe passing a clean continuing resolution in the first place would maybe help those 800,000 people? Evidently not.

And, a retort to the original Twitter:

Isaac Baumann ‏@Lunchboxc

.@RepHartzler Hahahaha, “slowdown?” Really? Are you kidding? 8:06 AM – 5 Oct 13

Representative Hartzler (r) doesn’t kid.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler ‏@RepHartzler

Just voted on a resolution expressing a sense of Congress regarding the need to continue chaplain services for our military during slowdown. 8:08 AM – 5 Oct 13

Still, there’s no sense of the Congress resolution about feeding hungry children. Interesting.
