    GOP shutdown government by using extraconstitutional means of holding government hostage. Shutdown means less workers to conduct the review for the views of federal agencies required by EO 13337 (a la Bush), such as EPA, Defense Sec. etc, around 8 federal agencies iirc to look at XL SEIS.

    So, now the GOP claim:  

    Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb.), told POLITICO in an email. “But it doesn’t have to be complicated. The president could just approve it.
    Well, sure, i guess, if President Obama wanted to violate the terms and spirit of the approval process, he could just scrap the process and approve the XL.
