View Diary: Poll: Tea party approves Republican shutdown, everyone else disapproves (87 comments)

  •  Partial (0+ / 0-)

    They like to say partial, because they like to say that only "non-essential" services have been cut, and we can do away with them, because they're not important enough to fund anyway (especially if they don't affect me as an upper-class person).  

    They like to think that this shutdown shows that all that unfunded stuff isn't necessary, and thus proves their ideology correct.  I've seen this thinking on FB.
