SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) – Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., let the Republicans know how he really felt about the government shutdown by dropping an expletive.

“You can’t say, OK, you get half of Obamacare – this isn’t a Solomonic decision. So we sit here until they figure out they f-n’ lost,” McDermott said in an interview with Slate.

McDermott went on to compare Republicans to terrorists. “Dealing with terrorists has taught us some things,” he said. “You can’t deal with ‘em. This mess was created by the Republicans.”

“People in my district are calling in for Obamacare – affordable health care – in large numbers,” McDermott continued. “The GOP can’t figure out how to admit that they’ve lost the battle on Obamacare,” he added.

According to a recent YouGov poll, 25 percent of Americans blame both parties for the government shutdown.
