Burr Says Shutting Down Government is Dumb

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) said that an emerging strategy to block a government funding bill over Obamacare is "the dumbest idea I've ever heard," The Hill reports.

Said Burr: "I think some of these guys need to understand that you shut down the federal government, you better have a specific reason to do it that's achievable. Defunding the Affordable Care Act is not achievable through shutting down the federal government."

First Read: 2014 already looks very positive for Republicans: It's going to be VERY difficult for Democrats to take back the House, and the GOP has a doable (though still narrow) path to take back the Senate. But could a government shutdown or protracted battle over the debt ceiling upend that 2014 apple cart?"
