Federal shutdown likely?

Screen shot 2011-04-06 at 8.40.10 AMThe White House and GOP continue their attempts to avoid a federal government shutdown scheduled for midnight on Friday. Tom Fiedler, Dean of Boston University’s  College of Communication, is a former executive editor of the Miami Herald and an expert American politics. He spoke with NECN and weighed in on who he feels is the loser in this debate.

“Well, actually I think both sides are going to lose in this. The American public, in general, is looking at this a little bit like a schoolyard fight. It’s both sides saying if I don’t get my way, I’m going home. There’s no question there is a loser in this and that’s the American public in general.”
