Gov Brewer,Businesses fight to reopen Grand CanyonSubmitted by ATruepatriot on Sun, 10/06/2013 - 08:27
With the partial suspension of U.S. government services showing no signs of ending, tourists will continue to be turned away from the Grand Canyon, despite a push by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and local businesses to reopen the state's signature national park.
Wish I could find a better link, I hate FOX: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/10/04/ariz-gov-rejected...
Governor Brewer and local businesses have offered to pay and keep the Grand Canyon open to tourism, The NPS has refused so far. This financially affects more states than just Az, Thousands of European tourists a day fly in to airports from coast to coast just to come and see the Grand Canyon.
They purchase plane tickets, They rent cars, buy fuel, pay for motels, eat at Restaurants and buy souvenirs from every state as they make their way to and from the Grand Canyon. This one could have been left open or let Az pay to keep it open. This is political posturing that will cost the National economy greatly.
Yet at the same time Obama found 1.4 billion to give to a CANADIAN company to repair the Obamacare website?
