We are now 7 days into the partial government shutdown, and the Obama Administration is on a mission to make its affects as painful as possible. "They are trying to make a phony shutdown feel real and consequential," Glenn said on tonight's Glenn Beck Program.
The shutdown only affects 15% of the government, but you would never know it based on what has been shuttered. In addition to closing privately funded monuments and memorials, closing the commissaries and PX on military bases, stopping funding for cancer-striken children, and kicking people out of their homes, President Obama chose to shut down the Amber Alert website, while leaving Michele Obama's Let's Move website and the Obamacare website fully functional. The Administration has since caved, and the Amber Alert system is back online, but the writing is on the wall.
The Democrats and this Administration have tried to slander the Republicans by calling their actions unprecedented. Meanwhile, the President and his Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, have publicly attempted to incite fear by suggesting the threatening the stock market. Talk about an unprecedented.
The left is trying to inflict as much pain as possible on the American people. What does it all mean? Glenn explains in the clip below:
