Contrary to 2005, Pawlenty sees government shutdown as a viable option

Contrary to 2005, Pawlenty sees government shutdown as a viable option

Tim Pawlenty told ThinkProgress on Saturday that shutting down the federal government is “an option I think Republicans have to consider.” It’s far different rhetoric than what the then-governor offered in 2005 when a budget standoff with the DFL led to the Minnesota’s first and only government shutdown. He said that the shutdown on his watch didn’t have a big impact on the state, but before it happened he warned it’d wreak “havoc” and be “unsettling and unfortunate and inconvenient and problematic” for thousands of Minnesotans. Further, a strategy he now sees as an option for the GOP he characterized as a “cynical political strategy” by the DFL in 2005 — and one that would have effects “far in the future.” Pawlenty spoke with ThinkProgress at the Tea Party Patriots Policy Summit in Arizona on Saturday.
