Limit the shutdown

AtascaderoOctober 2, 2013 

A friend offered this solution to the government shutdown: “An idea occurred to me this morning which I consider brilliant in its simplicity. Instead of a general federal shutdown, all federal services and funding should immediately be suspended to those congressional districts that have representatives who support the shutdown. Let them get exactly what they voted for.”

It has merit.
