The Obama shutdown

As part of its vindictive shutdown theater, the Park Service is evicting people from their own homes:

National Park Service officials cited the government shutdown as the reason for ordering an elderly Nevada couple out of their home, which sits on federal land.

“Unfortunately overnight stays are not permitted until a budget is passed and the park can reopen,” an NPS spokesman explained to KTNV.

Ralph and Joyce Spencer, aged 80 and 77, respectively, own their home, but the government owns the land on which it sits.

Just to be clear, they own the home and pay rent on the land. The federal government has no right to evict them, and doing so actually costs the government money. Is it really possible that Obama and the Democrats can get away with this?
