I’m curious to hear what you think of this. I don’t think the country’s prepared for a full on government shutdown over Obamacare. Or a full on government shutdown over anything for that matter. I don’t mean the country won’t be able to handle it. I mean, I don’t think anyone is expecting it. The country thinks this stuff ended back in 2011 and 2012 and doesn’t have any real idea we might be about to take another ride on this roller-coaster. And yet, as Sahil Kapur reported this evening, John Boehner and the House leadership seem poised to hoist up the white flag and turn the whole thing over to Ted Cruz and the Tea Party who claim at least that they believe the country will rally around them if they shut down the government in a vain effort to repeal Obamacare.

What do you think? Send me your thoughts?
