So you think the government shutdown happened because of some last minute crisis? That’s wrong- it’s was planned well in advance by the ultra-conservative Tea Party and its followers, including groups like Tea Party Patriots, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks, and Club for Growth, a business-backed nonprofit organization. Others are Generation Opportunity, Young Americans for Liberty, the Heritage Action and the Heritage Foundation. The billionaire Koch brothers, Charles and David, have been deeply involved with financing the overall effort.
Think this is just some crazy, paranoid conspiracy? It isn’t- it’s been reported in the New York Times. See for yourself.
