Behind The Big Show

Of course the shutdown was no accident either.

In case there was any doubt left in your mind as to where and why this government shutdown....or "slim down" if you happened to catch FOX's coverage...came into being:

" Shortly after President Obama started his second term, a loose-knit coalition of conservative activists led by former Attorney General Edwin Meese III gathered in the capital to plot strategy. Their push to repeal Mr. Obama’s health care law was going nowhere, and they desperately needed a new plan."

"To many Americans, the shutdown came out of nowhere. But interviews with a wide array of conservatives show that the confrontation that precipitated the crisis was the outgrowth of a long-running effort to undo the law, the Affordable Care Act, since its passage in 2010 — waged by a galaxy of conservative groups with more money, organized tactics and interconnections than is commonly known."

"Last week, with the health care exchanges open for business and a number of prominent Republicans complaining that the “Defund Obamacare” strategy was politically damaging and pointless, Mr. Needham of Heritage Action said he felt good about what the groups had accomplished."

But in the mainstream media, it is presented like this:

In shutdown blame game, Democrats and Republicans united: It’s the other side’s fault

  Both Sides To Blame For Shutdown

It's easier (and more profitable apparently) to take the loudest talking points that you hear and run with them...instead of delving into them and finding out that it's just the money doing the talking.
