Call a press conference every few hours, every day and repeat, time after time:

"Republicans shutdown the federal government because they don't want Americans to save money on health care."

There's no need for anything more verbose, just keep it simple stupid, that's what most people understand.

Repeat it often enough and the press will start saying it too, then we can pummel Republicans with it, over and over...
