Yes, a shutdown is a "paid" vacation that the media seems to gloss over. Only the payment of wages is deferred. The taxpayers essentially pay twice for the government work. If a job is to inspect one plane per day, the taxpayers will pay for the day the inspector stayed home and the again for the day its actually done. And its not like they are going to double up efforts for the backlog without costly overtime of sorts.

Southwest is actually saving us taxpayers money since less planes to inspect will be in the backlog AND the poor inspector didn't get paid time off!
