Bigger Issues than Who Shut Down Yellowstone

There are larger issues surrounding the “shutdown” than who shut down Yellowstone, Yosemite and the WW II Memorial Park– namely runaway government spending threatening our economic freedom.

It’s far easier to blame the Tea Party, Americans For Prosperity than to tackle the problem.
