National Republicans claim the Obama administration was responsible for the recent government shutdown. They point to the constitutional authority of the House of Representatives to control the budget and try to avoid responsibility for the $24 billion hit to our economy, as well as the job losses, furloughs, uncertainty for businesses, damage to families and decreased status with foreign governments it caused.
