Although House Republicans have pushed for a government shutdown on Sept. 30 over the Affordable Care Act, Republican Congressman Tom Price insists it’s President Obama that wants to take that measure.
He discussed both flexibility and inertia in Washington during a Rotary Club of Sandy Springs luncheon, Monday, and said President Barack Obama is the only person that wants to shutdown the government.
“Let me suggest to you that the only person that wants to shutdown the government is the President of the United States,” said Price. “I’m gonna repeat that. Let me suggest to you that the only individual that wants to shutdown the government is the President of the United States. And I say that because I believe that he believes, that it endures to his political benefit. We have no desire for the government to close, none whatsoever. We do desire that the processes of government work.”
Price also said, “Your Congress for better or worse is a pretty darn good representation of the nation.”
