What the Shutdown is About

The Washington Examiner wrote GOP stands firm against funding bill, will link to debt ceiling fight. Some choice quotes:

"‘This is not just about Obamacare anymore,’ centrist Rep. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y., said.

‘We’re not going to be disrespected,’ conservative Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., added. ‘We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.’"

“Why in the world would you do that?” [Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla] said of the clean funding bill. “That’s basically, at this point, a surrender to the Democratic position.”

Yep, so they can "get something out of this", kids with cancer aren't getting treated.
