Sean Duffy addresses the pending shutdown: "I want to keep the government open"

Amidst the controversy surrounding the pending government shutdown, on Monday evening Piers Morgan posed a direct question to U.S. Representative Sean Duffy:

"What is your view about what is happening right now," he asked. "Are you proud of the fact that the renegade element, as some are calling it, the Republican Party, leading us all into a government shutdown?"

Duffy didn't necessarily agree with the "Piers Morgan Live" host's perspective:

"I want to keep the government open," said the Republican from Wisconsin. "We voted just on one small section of Obamacare. We said let's delay the individual mandate. The president already delayed the employer mandate. Let's just treat big business the same as our individuals in America."

Despite the potential impact of a government shutdown, Duffy insisted that his position is designed to benefit the country as a whole, and in the long term:

"It's really reasonable. Listen, if the Senate is going to hold out and say 'we're not willing to include the president and his staff on Obamacare, we're not willing to treat individuals in America fairly and equally, just the same as big businesses, who stormed the Hill with money, going to the White House, and Congressmen's office, and they got an exemption for that. That we're not going to treat individuals fairly, just like big business,'" he detailed. "That's not right."

Watch the rest of the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Duffy, and for a special edition of "Piers Morgan Live," tune to CNN at 12a.

    Mr. Duffy is a clown. He has egg on his face now. Millions will be affected by this stunt.

    ACA has a mandate, is rule and law, approved by the Supreme Court. Congratulations for cutting off your noses to spite your faces.

      I fully agree with your statement about Sean Duffy. He says he didn't want the government to shut down, but did nothing to stop it. He lies and stands with those radical right wing Republicans who want to tear down our government. The hatred of Pres. Obama rivals the south's hatred of desegregation. The Republicans are NOT governing – they haven't passed one piece of legislation in the past two years. It is all about attacking President Obama and ripping apart the U.S. government. They are acting like domestic terrorists.

    I dedicate this song to the Tea Party boy's down there in Congress who forgot they were only out to destroy big government and not everyone else in between.

    "watch out, you might get what you wanted......'

    Mr Morgan I am actually appalled at your lack of intelligence, when obamacare was approved there were no 17 exemtions, Obama has broken the law, by changing the law on his own.Please, if you are going to make comments, get your facts straight!!!!!!!!!!!!

      You have missed boat. The exemptions in the ACA are at the behest of angered conservatives to placate them.

      Now they have failed. The ACA is rule and law. Ironically it stands and will be funded even with the government closed.

    This is the most undemocratic process I have seen in Washington in my 57 years. There was a wild eyed spokesmawomen for the Tea Party ranting on the show tonight. What are these republicans so terrified of. People paying for their own insurance? A black man accomplishing something big? Blaming Obama is ridiculous. The Affordable Care Act is law and I am glad. I can now purchace insurance. Is that so awful?

      Amen. As if health care for MORE people is such a bad thing. These whackos are willing to shut everything down to make a political point.

      Their days in power are numbered. Dems will prevail in 2014 and 2016

    Super PACs, Religion, & Lobbyists: “The Tea Party is funded by Koch Industries, or Big Oil.

    The Billionaires Bankrolling the Tea Party

    Only the fat cats change — not their methods and not their pet bugaboos
    (taxes, corporate regulation, organized labor, and government
    “handouts” to the poor, unemployed, ill and elderly).

    The Koch brothers gave over $55 million in bribes to scientists to say global warming is a hoax. They are a vast political network, sponsoring Christian conservative rallies and funding political ad campaigns nationwide. They are instrumental in busting unions and they pushed for the Citizens United/ ‘corporations are people’ law.””
