Jon Stewart Blames GOP for Shutdown

By Nathan Giannini | September 27, 2012



Jon Stewart took Republicans (and, of course, Fox News) to task for downplaying the effects of the government shutdown. In particular, he commented on the lack of concern for the nine million women and children living near or below the poverty line who won't be receiving food vouchers. 


Stewart wasn't alone in mocking the national shutdown: here are a few more from Stephen Colbert and Conan O'Brien. And stay with Newsy for mutli-source analysis of the government shutdown.
