Rachel Maddow Sums Up The Shutdown In One Incredible Graphic

Rachel Maddow:

Republicans said that they would shut down the government – or then, once they shut it down, refuse to open the government – unless they got each of these things. Of all of these things that they wanted, they got nothing.

The Democrats had suggested before this whole process that they would please like to talk about the budget, and now Republicans will go along with that.

If you’re looking to read more, the National Review posted a great early peek at House Republican demands leading up to the shutdown. You’ll see there were yet more that we couldn’t fit on the chart. Thanks, @BlondeWonk, for suggesting we post it.
