According to Right Wing Watch, televangelist and former presidential candidate Pat Robertson is urging the Republican Party to give up on defunding Obamacare and to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling.

"The Republicans have got to wave the white flag and say, ‘We fought a good fight and now it’s over,'" said Robertson. "They cannot shut the government down and then bring about a default. We can’t do it. I mean, it would be devastating economically to every human being and the Republicans just can’t get tarred with that."
