The GOP strategy shift ed from obstruct to destroy. Most (including most republican voters) don't want to see destruction, because it will break our fragile economy.
I watched Rand Paul yesterday on Fox news, and the guy was boasting about how they shutdown government and would start to fund it piece by piece until they got only what they wanted. But the sleazebag would go back and name the shutdown a democratic shutdown. He wasn't even man enough to accept their strategy and what they were doing.
