United for Missouri Calls for Government Shutdown



Some Washington lawmakers are pushing for a government shutdown over the push to de-fund Obamacare, but several of them from Missouri are against such an idea. Their opposition doesn't sit well with Carl Bearden of United for Missouri.

"Senator Roy Blunt is quoted as saying that shutting down the government is not the answer, it's the last resort. Well, I think we're at the last resort, because I haven't heard any plans from the Senate on how to be more effective."

The House voted to de-fund Obamacare last week, marking the 40th time they've tried to shut down the federal health care law.
