Jim Inhofe: Blame Harry Reid For the Shutdown, Not Republicans


Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.homa) has an interesting idea on how he thinks young Americans should process the current government shutdown. 

When asked by PolicyMic on Tuesday what he would say to young people who may be disillusioned with politics in the wake of the shutdown, and thus might think twice about entering public service, Sen. Inhofe answered, "I think if they — if they're not alert enough and aware enough to know that one person's really causing all this, maybe I don't want them to get into public service."

When asked who that '"one person'" person would be, Sen. Inhofe responded, "That'd be Harry Reid."

According to a new Quinnipiac poll, the Republican pParty currently has a 17% approval rating among those 18-29 years old. The current shutdown, which began at midnight Monday night, is not expected to end any time soon.
