Your logic goes like this, “The wealthiest people will be just fine if the government shuts down”. That’s great! What wonderful news for the people of the US “Honey, no worries when the government shuts down, because the wealthy will be okay”. “That’s nice dear, just as long as the wealthy are okay”.

Actually, “Cruz and his cronies” care not for anyone except themselves. The lunacy of their base keeps them in and the goal is self enrichment. I would prefer that you not mention the damage to the GOP, because they deserve to be damaged for being such insane people. I also would liken Cruz to Joe McCarthy in that it is irrational fear that he uses to pummel the country for his own personal benefit. It is a special kind of evil that is allowed to pretend it is good, and can fool so many people.

‘last autumn’s 16-day shutdown was seen as politically damaging to the GOP.’

Base on what was that shutdown seen as politically damaging, last month’s election results?
