The shutdown is a Tea Party win all by itself. Half the Republican Presidential candidates last cycle wanted to shut down multiple government departments. (But miraculously, the Pentagon is still chugging along at full speed.)
However, it's not treason, it's Congress, which has the power of the purse specifically so that they can withhold funds from other branches. This is exactly the kind of deadlock the Founding Fathers baked into the system.
As to the question "What will Obama do?" the answer is "Nothing, as per usual."
