Cornyn: ‘It May Be Necessary to Partially Shut Down the Government in Order to Secure the Long-term Fiscal Well-being of Our Country’

In an op-ed in the Chronicle this morning, republished on his website, Sen. John Cornyn:

The coming deadlines will be the next flashpoints in our ongoing fight to bring fiscal sanity to Washington. It may be necessary to partially shut down the government in order to secure the long-term fiscal well being of our country, rather than plod along the path of Greece, Italy and Spain. President Obama needs to take note of this reality and put forward a plan to avoid it immediately.

Does this mean we’ll soon have more delicious olive oils, cheeses, and seafood? Fingers crossed!
