Former Congressman Bob Carr talks about government shutdown

WASHINGTON (WKZO) -- Former Sixth District Michigan Congressman Bob Carr is among the retired lawmakers now calling on Congress to end the federal government shutdown. Carr says that not only do stubborn members of Congress need to do something to reduce the deficit, but they've also got to stop bickering and end the impasse.

He admits that'll be tough to do, though, with the vast majority of them knowing fully well they stand little chance of losing reelection efforts, thanks to the highly gerrymandered districts that most of them now enjoy.

Carr added that perhaps the best thing to do for Congress is to lock all members in a room and not let them come out until they reach some kind of agreement.
