Same here. I work in pediatrics so we don't get very much Medicare money, but Medicine and Anesthesia in my office will be slugged by this.

We are also suffering from the Medicare funding. Our senior depend on us for health care, and we cannot stop seeing them, but who knows when we will get paid

Thanks to the Constitution, they HAVE to get paid...but they should at least donate their salaries to charities that are helping those that are impacted the most by the shutdown...to be honest, I'm not surprised that this happened...I am SURPRISED that the Democrats have not caved and are holding their ground...each day that this drags on, the worse it is for the GOP who the public is blaming for the shutdown overall...they can see their tactics and meanwhile, people are signing up in droves for healthcare...if that continues, the GOP won't have a leg to stand on because then they would be taking it away from people...and we all know they don't have any options in place to give someone who has been waiting/needing health care any coverage....proving once again, that they are OWNED by the Tea Party and Lobbyists....

They should be ASHAMED of themselves! These bastards are on a PAID VACATION; while so many other VACATIONS are RUINED! People wait their WHOLE LIVES to visit the Grand Canyon, or see The STATUE OF LIBERTY; only to find them CLOSED!
The OTHER PEOPLE who are out of work &/or have "furloughed" jobs aren't getting paid! WHY SHOULD THEY?????
This crap would END PRONTO if THEIR paychecks were cut off or benefits stopped!
WHAT A BUNCH OF BABIES!!!!!!

Hopefully this means the Repubs are toast next election. I know my office won't be getting Medicare payments for awhile. Thank God the President got an exemption for the troops so they'd still get paid.
