They have not been NOT back paid since the 80's. As far back as the 80's congress has passed back pay every single time.

And there was an article indicating that the legislation to provide back pay is already in the works this time as well...

While it is not an absolute certainty, its pretty close.

I don't see EITHER political party willing to vote "no" on that bill in any significant numbers.

I think some few like a Ron Paul type might make a GESTURE of voting "no" but only if he was fully aware that his negative would not ACTUALLY result in the bill failing.
