U.S. House Republicans may take what could be unprecedented measures, up to and including “default or shutting down the government” in order to force President Obama to finally consider some real spending cuts, according to the video posted below.
House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington made the idea clear.
“I think it is possible that we would shut down the government to make sure President Obama understands that we’re serious,” she told Politico. “We always talk about whether or not we’re going to kick the can down the road. I think the mood is that we’ve come to the end of the road.”
