davidvitterThe Associated Press reports that U.S. Sen. David Vitter told a packed town hall meeting in Baton Rouge Thursday that he will support a federal government shutdown this fall rather than agree to pay for Obamacare.

Vitter said Thursday that he won't vote for legislation to continue paying for U.S. government services beyond Sept. 30 if it contains money for the health care law's implementation.

Vitter is standing firm despite fellow Republicans calling BS on this stupid idea, characterizing it as “terribly dangerous” (Sen. Tom Coburn), “a suicidal political tactic” (Rep. Tom Cole), “terror politics” (Rep. Peter King) and “the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard of” (Sen. Richard Burr).

The AP says participants in Vitter's town hall in Baton Rouge screamed "Shut it down," loudly cheering the idea as a way to kill the health care law.
