This isn't the first time. Republicans shut the government down before.

there have been 17 government shut downs since 1976. and the only two that are known about by the general public are this one and the one in 1995, only because there is such a fuss being made about those.

so have the democrats, lets be fair about this. and in fact as i have said about this shut down, and the one in 1995 is that BOTH SIDES are responsible. to blame one or the other is patently false.
