GOP SHUTDOWN

Nationwide, some 800,000 federal workers are off the job. Republicans in Washington insist they have simply been upholding the wishes of the American people throughout their efforts to block the Affordable Care Act, but a poll released Tuesday tells a very different story. In fact, the latest survey from Quinnipiac University contains a ton of bad news for the GOP. For starters, 72 percent of Americans said they are opposed to shutting down the government in an effort to block implementation of the health care law. A poll last week also showed a wide majority opposed to shutting down the government over Obamacare.
