Shutdown: ObamaCare (No) and the Federal Government (No)

Written by Gary North on September 24, 2013

The House of Representatives is making a symbolic attempt to shut down ObamaCare. The members know that they cannot get this through the Senate. Obama would veto it even if they could.

Why are they doing this? Because they can. They can let the voters back home know that they are taking a stand. They identify themselves as anti-ObamaCare. They can run on this platform in November of 2014.

Will they eventually capitulate? Yes. Again, they are making a symbolic gesture: “We don’t like the deficit.” Do they hate it so much that they are willing to shut down or make $700+ billion a year in spending cuts? No. They will catch too much opposition from voters who are on the dole.
