U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Bowling Green blames the unwillingness of Democrats to compromise for the ongoing government shutdown.
Senator Paul says President Obama has not shown any willingness to bend on the Affordable Care Act to meet Republicans somewhere in the middle.
He says Republicans have offered multiple compromises and none were received well.
Senator Paul accuses Democrats of playing political games with the shutdown.
Meanwhile, a very early poll shows Senator Paul as the frontrunner for the 2016 Presidential Primary. Former New York Senator and First Lady Hillary Clinton is the leader on the Democrat side.
