Hillary Clinton warns against government shutdown

NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton is warning congressional Republicans that they would be hurt by a government shutdown, saying such a move "wouldn't be the worst thing for Democrats."

The former first lady was asked about the possibility of a government shutdown amid Republican opposition to President Barack Obama's health care law.

She said during a Clinton Global Initiative panel that Republicans should remember the public's opposition to government shutdowns during her husband's first term.

Mrs. Clinton says, "We've seen this movie before."

The former New York senator and secretary of State defended Obama's health care law, saying there are "a lot of really good things" in the new system.

Obama planned to discuss the implementation of his health care law with President Bill Clinton at the meeting later in the day.
