The latest Republican lie: closure of the World War Two monument
In a truly shameful new development, Republicans have begun blaming Democrats for the closure of of various federal monuments and parks. The government shutdown was the result of an attempt by the Republican Party in the House of Representatives to extort certain concessions from the other branches of government. This attempt at extortion was a violation of the oaths of office taken by the Republican members who voted in favor of it and a violation of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and therefore unconstitutional.
Republicans can lie all they want, the American people know who is responsible for the shutdown and the disrespect shown to American veterans.
