Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonderandhome.com

    I agree with the main point of OW-8 – there’s never really been a penalty to Republicans for shutting down the government. Remember Ted Cruz’s filibuster shutdown? The pundits were all SURE that Republicans would take a drubbing for it the next election – they picked up house and senate seats instead. Ditto the most recent two shut downs. It cost a ton of money to partially turn the government off and on, but there’s no political downside, nor will there be this time. Afterall, Republicans seem to have convinced a lot of Americans that the federal government is their enemy.Report
