UPDATED: Is it fair to blame the teaparty for a government shutdown?

“Listen, there’s no daylight between the tea party and me. None.” — John Boehner, ABC News interview, 6 April 2011

UPDATE: Greg Sargent:

Two polls find Republicans and Tea Partyers want a shutdown: If that’s what Boehner is up to, it’s made more understandable by two new polls. Gallupfinds that Republicans are the only group who expect their leaders to hold out for what they want (51-44), even if it leads to a shutdown. By contrast, Dems (68 percent) and independents (60 percent) strongly support a compromise.

  1. I wrote an opinion yesterday about it. Of course they want a shutdown. That would ensure all the cuts immediately that the republican party wants anyways. I’m just pissed that Congress would continue to get paid even if there is a shut down.
