Republicans send out message to President Barack Obama, meet our demands or face a government shutdown, Washington

It might be something that might not have been expected from the Grand Old Party, the Republicans. GOP had been opposing Obamacare from the very beginning. To oppose it they had laid out many facts and reasons and at a point we even got to hear Romneycare in opposition of Obamacare. But since all those tactics didn’t work out well with them, the Republicans are all set for a new trend. In fact it’s not a new trend, it’s something that the Americans and the world had witnessed in 1990’s, when Speaker Newt Gingrich had done the same thing and former President Bill Clinton’s government suffered badly.
What does the Republican want?
If President Barack Obama does not meet their demands regarding issues like taxes, energy policy and finally shutting down Obamacare, then be ready for government shut down. Not only will they bring down the government but also the already suffering economy.
Such a demand can also be termed as open blackmailing. But before taking such a step the Republicans must first find out whether they have enough support and votes from both the people and also from within their own people. Some Republicans have shown full enthusiasm against this decision with an attitude of ‘they want a fight so we would give them a fight’ while some are not sure of this decision. They believe that there was more to the 1990 shut down than what is known and it appears more like a suicide mission to them rather than any achievement. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
