Republicans Working Hard To Shut Down National Government

September 28, 2013

Even Allen Drury could not have created this plot line.

The White House issued a statement this afternoon saying the House GOP bill tying a one-year Obamacare delay to the continuing resolution is a prelude to a government shutdown.

Today Republicans in the House of Representatives moved to shut down the government,” reads the statement from press secretary Jay Carney.”Republicans in Congress had the opportunity to pass a routine, simple continuing resolution that keeps the government running for a few more weeks,” Carney said. “But instead, Republicans decided they would rather make an ideological point by demanding the sabotage of the health care law.”

“Any member of the Republican Party who votes for this bill is voting for a shutdown,” Carney added.

The fact that we are even entertaining a CR that will last for just a few weeks is also a clear signal that there is something very wrong in Washington.

Later this afternoon The White House said that President Obama would veto the bill being pushed by the House GOP in the ongoing budget showdown.
