Rand Paul: ‘I Don’t Think Shutting Down the Government Is a Good Idea’

by Katrina Trinko

Talking about the Obamacare defunding push, Senator Rand Paul said he did not believe a government shutdown was the answer.

“I don’t think shutting down the government is a good idea,” Paul said on Fox News Sunday.

But, while acknowledging it was unlikely the Senate would pass a continuing resolution defunding Obamacare, Paul called on House Republicans to take advantage of their majority and defund Obamacare in their continuing resolution.<

Then, Paul proposed, Republicans could get Democrats to compromise and agree to some changes in conference that would delay and/or weaken Obamacare.
