Alford Says Likely Government Shutdown Being Caused By Small Group


It’s appearing more and more likely that the federal government will shut down this weekend.

Western Missouri Congressman Mark Alford says the battle centers around a small group of Republicans who are rebelling against the agreement earlier this year that raised the nation’s debt ceiling.

Along with other issues. Meanwhile, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz may push to oust Kevin McCarthy as House Speaker if the four holdouts don’t succeed in getting their demands.
