Americans Don't Want A Shutdown and They Don't Want Obamacare

Yes. Their two state governments functioned smoothly. I'm sure America will not collapse if 16,000 IRS workers remain unemployed. The sun will rise tomorrow despite zero-care being not funded. It will still rise despite president downgrade and reid ongoing stupidity. So far I don't see a downside. Lets keep her shut down.

Do not confuse America with the current USG.

The USG would indeed be reduced immediately and very painfully for all those who work for it by default.

Caving into the current demands of Ted Cruz and the tea party/conservatives will be far less painful.

Smart Dems should do that - very soon. Popular support for this faux shutdown is growing by the hour. :)
