George Clooney Explains the Shutdown [View all]



snip//

"It's basically: 30 people in one half of one branch of the three branches of government are shutting down the government. Okay, that's how they want to play? Okay. That's fine if everybody comes to their senses before we actually destroy the economy and lose credit, full faith and credit, as they like to say. That's a big deal."

"So my sense is, cooler heads will prevail in the debt-ceiling crisis. I don't think too much will happen."

"Look, sequestration is a big deal. People like to brush it off and say nothing happened, but an awful lot of kids aren't being fed, and a lot of stuff happens that just gets swept under the rug."

"Shutting down the government is not how you make government work. And anybody who thinks we don't need it is an idiot."
