Pelosi charges Republicans want gov't shutdown

Posted: Updated:

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi says Republicans are using their opposition to health-care reform as an excuse to shut down the federal government.
    
The California Democrat says anti-government ideologues dominate the GOP and for them forcing a shutdown would be a victory.
    
She says, however, that GOP efforts to derail health-care reform and shut down the government have "no prospect of prevailing."
    
Pelosi says the goal of some in the GOP is to get the government out of the lives of Americans by handing Social Security over to private bankers and allowing Medicare to "wither on the vine."
    
The former House speaker made her comments Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."
