Conservative political commentator and author Ann Coulter has come to the GOP’s defense regarding their failed attempt to take down Obamacare and the resulting 16-day partial government shutdown.
“The shutdown was so magnificent, run beautifully. I’m so proud of these Republicans, and that is because they have branded the Republican party as the anti-Obamacare party,” Coulter said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday.
She advised people to vote for more republicans like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) so there could be more shutdowns and debt ceiling crises.
Coulter said she disagreed with those who said the shutdown should have lasted longer, saying the Republicans handled it well.
“What is the point of banging your head against a wall?” she said. “They accomplished a lot. And it was brilliant how they played it.”
While the GOP was praised by Coulter, recent polls reveal that public favorability ratings for the House Republicans over the shutdown reached all time lows.
A series of polls conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP) showed that Democrats have a good chance of taking the House of Representatives in 2014 if present voter anger over the shutdown and the debt crisis persists.
Coulter also told Hannity that Obamacare was designed to fail so that single payer health care can replace it, which she says will be worse.
