The Grand Canyon is closed.
The Park Service employees are furloughed because of the Continuing Resolution impasse.
Jan Brewer, the Governor of Arizona, offered a simple solution. Her state would pick up the tab to fund park staffers until the impasse is resolved:
“I offered to reopen the Grand Canyon to visitors by using state money, but federal officials declined my offer. I really shouldn’t be surprised that the Obama Administration doesn’t want Arizona’s help.”
The president said no.
He is not interested in compromise. He wants to destroy Republicans, and he can only accomplish that if the little guy (us) feels pain.
