Rep. Lynn Westmoreland: ‘God Created the World in 7 Days’ So Surely We Can Avoid Government Shutdown in 10 Days

Will Congress be able to avoid a government shutdown because Republicans want to defund the Affordable Care Act?

Newsmax TV interviewed Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) to ask him about it and his response was… well… just watch at the 1:43 mark:

[Host] John Bachman: … there’s only 10 days until this apocalyptic moment when the government supposedly is gonna shut down and government might default for the first time in history. To the people who say, you know, you guys kind of are waiting till the last minute here, with only 10 days to go, what do you say to them?

Lynn Westmoreland: Well, God created the world in seven days. So, I mean, ten days is not out of the reach for the Senate to act, surely

*Facepalm*

And since God didn’t actually create the world in seven days, does that mean we’re all screwed?

Don’t answer that.
