CNN’s Jake Tapper to California Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy (California): "If you're interested in truly reforming Obamacare, then there are other ways to do it. And this doesn't seem like a good faith effort to reform Obamacare. First you wanted to defund it."
McCarthy to Tapper: "We've tried many different ways. But let's think of what Obamacare has done, okay? You're thinking that republicans are just doing this. The president has made the case for us. Ten times this year he's delayed one portion of Obamacare."
David Letterman in his opening monologue on the shutdown: "United States, I don't know what to tell you. Not working." "We are like a Carnival cruise on land."
