Earlier in the day, a number of high-ranking Democrats took to the airwaves to hammer a message that the Republicans are employing a "government shutdown strategy."

The No. 2-ranking Democrat in the Senate, Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) charged his GOP colleagues with being "hell-bent" on employing a government shutdown.

This report does not state where Durbin made this claim and, even more importantly, whether someone asked him why the Senate wasn't in session if the Dems were really all that concerned about a government shutdown. Does anyone know if that obvious follow up question was asked?
