Assigning Blame for the Government Shutdown

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

As the nation continues to grapple with a government shutdown, assigning blame has been volleyed between Republicans and Democrats. While the American people care little about the political machinations between the two parties, concerns about the consequences of the government shutdown are measurable. 73% of the American people opposed Republican efforts to attach the Affordable Care Act to the budget resolutions before Congress. Yet, Speaker John Boehner has refused to bring a clean Continuing Resolution to the floor for a vote. Democrats roundly critical of Boehner’s leadership maintain that if a Clean Resolution is brought up for a vote, there will be an immediate end to the government shutdown. With national parks closed, Food Inspection grinding to a halt and 800,000 Federal employees furloughed as a result of the shutdown, the bet Republicans hedged that the American people are on their side appears foolhardy. ‘COMMUNITY VOICES’ host, Ron Holland delves into all of the issues surrounding the government shutdown.
