House GOPer: Shutdown 'Is A Loser For Us'

Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) said Sunday that a federal government shutdown would probably be a "loser" for the Republican party.

“I think everybody agrees that this is a loser for us if the government shuts down,” Labrador said on Meet The Press.“That’s why I think the president and the Democrats want to shut down the government.”

A shutdown looked increasingly likely Sunday. The House passed Saturday a spending bill that would delay Obamacare for one year and repeal its medical device tax. Senate Democratic leadership has already said it's dead on arrival.

If, as expected, the Senate tables the House's Obamacare amendments Monday and sends a clean spending bill back to the House, there will be mere hours until the federal shuts down Tuesday.

“Let’s be really honest about this. The other side would like to see Republicans in trouble in 2014," Labrador said. "The other side wants to make sure that they’re not even willing to meet us halfway.”

Even the Republicans agree that the government shutdown hurt the GOP the most.

Boehner won't let a clean spending bill come to the floor because he knows it will pass.

The tea party has signed their own death warrant. The polls are now showing that the American public blames the Republicans for the government shutdown with the Democrats having a very good chance of taking control of the House in 2014 as a result of the GOP fiasco. Even Republicans are distancing themselves from the tea party now, and Boehner is unwilling to allow a vote on a clean spending bill because MANY Republicans have now said that they would break ranks and vote for it.

The government shutdown most likely will win control of the House back for the Democrats.

The GOP government shutdown was a loser for America. Once again the Republicans dealt a blow to the US economy instead of helping it.
