Ted Cruz, Idiot R-Texas, is accusing Obama of threatening to shut down the Federal government. This should be interesting. Unfortunately, government employees who have nothing to do with this stupidity are going to suffer until hateful men like Cruz are thrown into the streets, to beg for food from their wealthy masters.
This is also an excellent example of the ham handed but still effective propaganda the right wing constantly employs. Accusing your opponent of doing the very thing you are engaged in is so simple it should be transparent to anyone paying attention, but it works for those not predisposed to analyzing what their political champions are saying and doing. That is, it works to keep the right wing zealots actively behind whatever their leaders are doing.
