So basically, Mr. Shultz is saying that we should all just ignore these facts: * 83% of governmentRead More is NOT shut down * currently furloughed federal employees are pretty much guaranteed reimbursement of lost wages following the shutdown (a.la. every shutdown prior to this one) * The President has (until public opinion started going against him) refused every opportunity to negotiate with the House * The Senate has refused to negotiate with the House * The fed has deliberately made every attempt to make this shutdown as painful as possible by even barricading privately owned establishments should they fall on federally-owned property * The fed has kicked people out of their own homes if they happen to be on a lease of federally owned land - even though there is no government oversight of that land typically anyway * The have refused veterans the right to visit their memorials while allowing a pro-amnesty event to occur on otherwise 'closed' grounds * The fed even went so far as to block off state-owned roads which allowed for viewing of Mt. Rushmore even though the official park there was closed All of this, and Mr. Shultz wants us to hold Rep. Boehner in particular and conservatives in general responsible.... Hmmm. No.
