Despite his efforts to shift the blame, Rep. Tom McClintock knows full well that the shutdown resulted from a deliberate Republican strategy. He also knows that if the House voted on the resolution as passed by the Senate, it would be approved, the shutdown would end and Yosemite would reopen.
As our representative, he should call on Speaker John Boehner to allow that vote to take place. McClintock has this opportunity to demonstrate courage and integrity, or the opposite.
