I beg to differ...

According to Deputy Secretary of Defense William J. Lynn III in a Message to DOD Workforce on Potential Government Shutdown, "the President has made it clear that he does not want a government shutdown, and the administration is working to find a solution with which all sides can agree." I don't think the President has "made it clear" at all. He's used those words, of course, because he knows that he cannot, politically, crow about it if it happens, but the behavior of the Democrats in the Senate and the President haven't "made it clear" at all that they don't want a government shutdown. I'd argue that they've behaved much more like a group that thinks a shutdown is going to benefit them politically, and are resisting any attempts at a legitimate solution...
