Former Gov. Jeb Bush says the threat by some Republicans of shutting down the federal government to force defunding of Obamacare is unrealistic, reports The Hill.
“If you control one-half of one-third of leverage in Washington, D.C., your ability to influence things are also relative to the fact that you have one-half of one-third of the government… It’s a reality. This isn’t a hypothetical. So as we get closer to these deadlines, there needs to be an understanding of that, or politically it’s quite dicey for the Republican Party,” Bush said Wednesday at the National Press Club.
