McCain to GOP: Don’t Shut Down Gov’t
Why can’t McCain just retiree and go away.

On Monday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) urged House Republicans to not shut down the federal government.
“I hope my colleagues in the House who believe we need to shut down the government will understand that that’s not want the American people want,” McCain said on CNN. “They hate government, but they don’t want it to stop functioning.”
President Barack Obama and Republicans have to agree on another resolution to fund the government before the current resolution expires on September 30. As The Hill notes, at least a third of House Republicans want the Republican leadership to use the next round of budget negotiations to defund Obamacare before the Obamacare exchanges go into effect on October 1. Last week, the House postponed a vote on a continuing resolution to fund the government because conservative House members balked at what they said was a gimmick and another “symbolic” vote that did not take any meaningful steps to defund Obamacare.
