Republican governors warn against federal shutdown

Posted By on Mon, Aug 5, 2013 at 8:34 AM

Republican governors, even Wisconsin's Scott Walker, are warning Republicans in Congress that it would be a bad idea to shut down the federal government as part of an effort to block Obamacare. New York Times reports.

A range of Republican governors, including some who have refused to implement elements of the health initiative in their states, said in interviews that a standoff in Washington before the new fiscal year this fall could backfire on the party if it is seen as being responsible for bringing the government to a halt.

Rep. Cotton? Perhaps he'll offer some thoughts on this when he announces for U.S. Senate tomorrow.
