The Shutdown Costs - brought to you by people who worry about the national debt
If you like this kind of thing, thank the Congressional Republicans, in particular Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
And remember these folks who fuss and fume about our country's deficit have no problem finding money for war but not for the needs of our people. While they continue to affirm tax cuts/breaks for the rich and their corporate friends, they work to balance the budget on the backs of the elderly, the poor and the infirm. If they get their way, Social Security will be cut and privatized and Medicare will be but a dream, for the insurance companies will have free reign over our health care!
h/t to Bob Poris who had this to say:
Does anyone care? They made their point and the contributions rushed in. 24 billion dollars wasted is ok, unless Democrats do it.
