The article cites the three reasons presented by U.S. Republican David Frum as to why a government shut down will hurt the Republican Party. Frum argues that a government shut down will derail the health care plan of President Barack Obama. He suggests a possible repetition of the 2012 election when Republicans expected that presidential candidate Mitt Romney will win. He sees potential retreat of Republicans as party activists will be demotivated and recriminate against their own leadership.
