White House Goal: Government Shutdown

Tea Party Senator Mike Lee makes an inappropriate, yet pretty likely, suggestion - that the president has been maneuvering to achieve a government shutdown for months.

"It was either irresponsible on one hand or deliberate and malicious on the other with intention to bring about a sequence of events that would culminate inevitably in a government shutdown," Senator Mike Lee said on the Senate floor today.

This is how politics in America works today - the well being of the nation is not their purpose.
