Shutdown rebranded to Slimdown

While on my Twitter account today, I noticed a number of Republican politicians that I followed began referring to the Government Shutdown over the Affordable Care Act implementation as a ‘Slowdown’ instead of ‘Shutdown.’ I thought this was strange, so I went to and saw the same verbiage. File this under the ‘Things that make you say hmm’ category, while it also appears as further inarguable evidence of Fox’s ties to the ultra-conservative movement.Image
