House Republicans are on a “kamikaze” crusade, led by a “suicide caucus” within the GOP, to extend the shutdown and force a White House showdown over the debt ceiling, Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) said Sunday.
“Don’t take the dramatic step of shutting down the government unless you have a real strategy, and a chance of working,” King said.
“This never had a chance to work . . . and people are still out of work, and the government is still shut down,” King said during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
King has been one of the few GOP voices in the House to opposed the party’s efforts to leverage the shutdown as a means of drawing concessions from the White House on ObamaCare.
“I don’t want to continue to be a facilitator for both a disastrous process and plan,” King told reporters shortly before the shutdown.
