Besides, the shutdown has nothing to do with Obama, he isn’t part of Congress.
It’s all about this guy.
He is Speaker of the House, and the most powerful Republican right now. He’s the one that caused the gridlock by focusing on all the harmful cuts. As we’ve seen historically, make too many cuts, and you’re fucked.
