McCain Warns Against Government Shutdown
(WASHINGTON) -- Disdain for the government doesn't mean you put it out of its misery. That was the message Arizona Sen. John McCain delivered Monday to fellow Republicans who seem intent on a government shutdown if they don't get their way on a short-term funding bill due on Oct. 1. Appearing on CNN’s New Day Monday, McCain argued, "I hope my colleagues in the House who believe we need to shut down the government will understand that that’s not want the American people want. They hate government, but they don’t want it to stop functioning."
