Midwest lawmakers: Don't blame me for shutdown

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Republicans in the Midwest would like you to know something about the government shutdown that closed the national parks and put 800,000 workers on the street: They had nothing to do with it. Please don't blame them.

That message spilled out of the offices of state legislators, and even governors, in public statements, tweets and interviews as politicians outside Washington scrambled to insulate themselves from the partisan turmoil that sent repercussions across the country.

No shutdowns here, they assured, in one state capital after another. We wouldn't do that.

"Here in Lansing, we will continue to work hard on solutions to issues facing Michigan's families," declared Rep. Al Pscholka, a conservative Republican from southwestern Michigan.

Said Republican Gov. Rick Snyder about his way with budget problems: "We came in, did tax reform, balanced the budget, have done that several years successfully."

The shutdown began Tuesday after a group of tea party Republicans in Congress made a last-ditch effort to block funding for President Barack Obama's health insurance overhaul. Apparent to all, even in state capitals miles away, were the lessons of the shutdowns during Bill Clinton's presidency. Many voters blamed Republicans and exacted retribution in the next election.

Should any partisan blame start flying now, state politicians, especially moderate Republicans in the Midwest, want cover.
