 Brewer announced she offered to re-open the Grand Canyon to visitors by using Arizona state money, but federal officials declined her offer.

Brewer went on to say, "I really shouldn't be surprised that the Obama Administration doesn't want Arizona's help."

The Grand Canyon is just one of many national parks and monuments closed to the public due to the government shutdown.

Cannot let the racist overtones of the last two posts on this site go without comment...I am White and I find it obscene that people like these still use the race card in whatever they post...the POTUS's race has nothing to do with anything...and you can look no further than your tea swilling anti-American clowns in the House for the disaster-in-the-making this country faces today...and tomorrow. You two will go down with all other Americans who are being forced to suffer because of them.

For a few minutes, until all America wakes up to the tea party disaster unfolding before our eyes, this country belongs to the "go to hell, do not collect $200" rabble holding this country hostage...these dumb and dumber clowns can't even grasp that the Patient Protection & Affordable Healthcare Act is LAW, but still yammer on with absolutely no regard for what a protracted shutdown will do to literally everyone...except, of course, the rich...and most of you do not fall into this category.

You would think that no one would admit to being a Democrat after all the crap this administration has pulled much less vote for one in the next decade. Oh, I forgot about Don & Pete, they are both hardcore Democrats and could care less how crooked and awful their party is as long as they are in office. What a joke, burden, and disgrace the Democrats have become.

Really shows the true color of Obama he is acting like a kid . All those Government employees will get their back salaries when it's all said and done he just wants to put a big show on for sure.

What a crock.

This just shows you how spiteful Obama and Co. are.

All they are doing is trying to PUNISH citizens in any way they can over this.

2014 is almost here. VOTE THEM OUT!!! TEA PARTY RULES!
