This is a perfect example of Obama's disdain for the American citizens. The monuments around DC are all open air and have NO reason to be shutdown or barricaded. At most they might close up any access to the inside of the monuments. But the morons in the White-house will purposely go to extremes to find ways to cause the most possible inconvenience and irritate to the citizens so he can attempt to shift the blame for his failure as president off to someone else. Recall that Obama is the one that said NO to any negotiation and it was the Democrat controlled Senate that refused to pass a funding measure (twice) that would have avoided all of this just because they know that they can not get the abomination called Obama(don't)care or the (un)Affordable Care Act through on a straight up vote now that people are starting to find out just how big a disaster it really is.
If they were to give the 'real' numbers maybe people would actually see that debt has nearly 'overwhelmed' the budget already. The only reason the economy is still sputtering on at all is due to all the counterfeit fiat money that is being printed by the FED. The fact remains that the only way off of this cliff is to jump but the administration wants to keep climbing higher before doing so without considering that the landing is only going to be that much harder as a result.
