Jim Jones & Papoose Comment on Government Shutdown Circumventing the Law

With only ten days before the U.S. government potentially defaults on its financial obligations for the first time in history, the argument of who is to blame rages onward.

Jim Jones kept it light with TMZ. When he was released from police custody after being arrested for speeding on a New York highway, appearing to be under the influence of drugs, he joked, “I can’t talk about it. You gotta ask the government. Oh, they shut down!”

For Papoose, the effects are much more serious, not only for those affected by disabled services, but also what it means for American governance. The failure to pass a budget is impermissible when holding the very law hostage.

“If you sit back and analyze it, other branches of government agreed to it. Even the judicial system ruled it’s constitutional.” Blaming it on Obama not selling the idea of universal healthcare is not a valid reason, by the Brooklyn emcee’s account on AllHipHop. “I think he explained it very much well in the details about it, as far as the taxes are concerned. Obama breaks this shit down fully. All you gotta do it pay attention… They shutting down on their own. There’s no bigger form of self-destruction than that. So with all the crookedness that goes on with politics, it speaks for itself.”
