'We don't mind you shutting down'

While Republicans threaten a government shutdown over a fight with Democrats on offshore drilling, the Libertarian Party says such a dramatic step wouldn't be so bad.

"We don't mind Congress shutting down," says Andrew Davis, spokesperson for the Libertarian Party. "At least taxpayers will get a break from Congress' spending spree.  Anything that government does to decrease how active it is in passing new laws and spending taxpayer money is something the Libertarian Party fully supports."
