EVEN JOHN BOOZMAN: Sees government shutdown a poor strategy.
  • EVEN JOHN BOOZMAN: Sees government shutdown a poor strategy.
U.S. Sen. John Boozman, no liberal, couldn't have spoken more clearly on whether opponents of Obamacare should shut government rather than vote for a budget that continues the federal health care law.

He said Tuesday that the shutdown would be more complete and severe than past budget impasses and it would damage a fragile economy. He said the Tea Party-backed moved in support of a shutdown was not a "winnable strategy."

Where is Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton? He's made repeated favorable noises about shutdown as a strategy to defeat Obamacare. He and his spokesman have so far refused to give a clear answer to the question of whether he'd cast a vote that resulted in a shutdown of federal government. Is his adherence to economic extremism more important than jobs, the U.S. economy and functioning of the federal government? That is the question.
