- Drowning the beast in the bathtub, cont. - Conservative polling indicates that shutting down the government to demand defunding Obamacare is popular. As long as their Social Security checks continued to be sent, that is:
The poll, conducted by GOP firm Basswood Research between Aug. 7-8, found that 28 percent of voters in the 10 districts would blame Republicans for a shutdown over defunding Obamacare, compared with 22 percent who would place blame on President Barack Obama and 19 percent who would blame Democrats in Congress. Seventeen percent said they would distribute blame equally among all three groups.
The poll also showed that 60 percent of voters would back a “temporary slowdown in non-essential federal government operations, which still left all essential government services running" if Obama could agree to at least slow the implementation of the law.
"Remember fellow Republicans," GOP firm Basswood Research didn't say, "you need to breathe in AND out. Use your mouth if you must."(Livewire)
