The shutdown of Washington has now become the battle of Yorktown.
In the same place where America fought its final battle of independence, one American businessman is refusing to bow to pressure to close up shop during the shutdown.
His story is just one example of what many view as the Obama administration’s widespread overreach during the government gridlock.Glenn Helseth loves serving up good food at his Carrot Tree Kitchens Restaurant in historic Yorktown — something he’s been doing for the past 11 years. But the government shutdown recently forced the eatery to close its doors.
The National Park Service owns the building he uses, so Helseth was ordered to move out within 48 hours when the government shutdown began last week.
