Lauren Fox, political reporter for U.S. News and World Report, and White House reporter for The Washington PostDavid Nakamura talk to Alex Witt about the possible government shutdown. Nakamura said that the President is making it clear that he is not going to negotiate with the House on the Affordable Care Act. If the debt ceiling isn’t raised then there is a chance that the economy may be hurt by it. He believes that if this happens, the White House will take the blame. Fox states that Senator Ted Cruz has made an influence on John Boehner’s job, making it more difficult.
