Maddow: House Republicans in Chaos Over Government Shutdown: 'Do They Have Any Idea What They Are Doing'? (Video)

This weekend, Rachel Maddow called out the House Republicans for their lack of direction and leadership, with a government shutdown looming. She said that the pending government shutdown would not be so scary if the Republicans seemed to have a clue about what they are doing. Maybe this explains why they were boozing it up on Saturday while voting to shut down the government.

Maddow showed this photo that ran on a Wall Street Journal article about the current GOP confusion. Maddow compared the photo to Leonaro da Vinci’s “Last Supper” painting.

“House Republicans are a classical array of stunned and mystified,” Maddow said. “This is a work of art. The Senate has done its thing, but the government shutdown deadline is Monday and, privately or publicly, on the record or off, no one in House leadership seems to be able to say what the Republicans will do, and that appears to be because they do not know.”

The Senate passed a bill that fully funded the government, and also Obamacare, but it is now in the hands of – as Maddow put it – “the place where chaos reigns”.

What will the House GOP do? Will they shut down the government over Obamacare, or will they finally fold their cards?
