If this guy yesterday had an agenda, it was a miserable time to make his point. Friday afternoon is not the time to make news.
But, if the guy sent some diatribe to the media (i.e. did it because against Obamacare, did it because can't get medical care during shut down)before he did this yesterday, and the media decides to run with the issue on Monday. Then we'll see if it had any impact.
My guess is that this won't have any impact. If it was meant to send a message, it could have been done much better.
