On the timidity of house Republicans with regard to a possible government shutdown.
Why are you so afraid of the shutdown? Why are you so afraid of it? Even if you do get blamed, what are we talking about here? We're talking about an out-of-control federal government, we're talking about you guys ran for reelection in November, you won big on it. If you believe in the idea, to hell with the ancillaries here. If the government's gonna be shut, if that's the result here, then own it. And go out and explain it.
