Cong. Peterson: "Much more partisan... much more dysfunctional"

by Amy Iler

Congressman Collin Peterson says this government shutdown is "much more partisan... much more dysfunctional than 1995-96".  In addition, he doesn't believe this does any good for the farm bill (which has now expired) and doesn't believe Obama is "anywhere close" to being on the same page as the Republicans in Congress. 

Peterson says, "If you can't get a farm bill done - which is usually bi-partisan - how are you going to get anything else done?"
