First of all, it isn't $24 billion "spent on the debt ceiling fiasco". It's $24 billion "out of the U.S. economy." Big difference.
Two bad you are not smart enough to learn how to use a search engine.
Hereís a breakdown of some of the economic cost according to TIME:
About $3.1 billion in lost government services, according to the research firm IHS
$152 million PER DAY in lost travel spending, according to the U.S. Travel Association

There are some very smart and informative lefties on here, I learned right away that wasting my time and energy on them with the facts was a total waste so I assume their level it doesn't prove anything but it makes me feel better. It's the only real way to communicate when you are dealing with their programmed ignorance that is imbedded into their very fiber.

I'm sure Obama would be flattered that you believe he is capable of writing a software program but calling him a thief because the company that was hired to set up Obamacare.gov didn't keep the copyright notices for DataTables in THEIR software program is just insane.
Note: DataTables was developed by SpryMedia and is a FREE program. There is no need to steal it.
"DataTables is free, open source software that you can download and use for whatever purpose you wish, on any and as many sites you want. It is free for you to use! DataTables is available under two licenses: GPL v2 license or a BSD (3-point) license, with which you must comply (to do this, basically keep the copyright notices in the software)."
so, Obama violated the licenses...

When was the last time Republicans passed a bill that was actually funded?
"Shiningerection thinks you don't pay taxes under Republican administrations." is a lie.

Now he claims he didn't defect; didn't give files to the Chinese or the Russians! What is he doing there? Looking for a Svetlana to bring back here? As if we don't have enough Russians whores roaming around scamming people.
"silly"
Have to agree with you, snowden is a traitor. He discovered information damning to the administration of the boy president nobama but he used the long method to expose the illegal activities. He should have went thru channels.
O hope he does return to the US so he can be tried as the traitor he is.

Can you stop clinging to Liberal polls and references and use common sense?
Start with clinging to FREEDOM and PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

tea party common sense?

Shutdown supporters have told themselves that even if the odds proved insurmountable, this battle had to be fought on principle. Something positive has come out of this: psychological satisfaction in doing the right thing, which will translate into greater resolve in the future.

But is anyone who is psychologically satisfied by actions that in fact cost taxpayers additional money, and that are counterproductive in the public arena, really an opponent of big government? A feeling of courageous satisfaction here is perverse: it subverts the principle itís supposed to support.

Imagine what the Tea Party would accomplish if this incident became paradigmatic: government would grow, anti-government sentiment would be discredited, and the people responsible for both would continue to applaud themselves as the only true champions of limited-government principle.

The self-defeating emotionalism of Ted Cruzís admirers wonít allow them to think through this problem. Instead they present themselves with a false dilemma between Cruzís counterproductive incompetence and RINO liberalism. That there could be a more intelligent strategy for limited government than merely doing what feels good never occurs to themóitís too painful to contemplate.

emotionalism is not the way to run a government.

No other president Republican or democrat shut down the National Parks--only the liberal loon O'bama. The government shut down under Clinton for 21 days--no one said a word how much it cost anyone, must be because Clinton was the first black president huh?

The only thing that wouldn't be the same is the revenue generated by the National Parks... Republicans would have shut them down years ago.

it cost the economy 24 billion dollars!!
It hurt hard working small business owners.
It hurt waitresses in restaurants.
Why?
Just to get their names on the news & fire up their dumbass base - like you.
But lets spend a million or so on investigating glitches in a website instead of investigating the deliberate harm to our economy by a bunch of Congressmen & Senators that are supposed to be for America - not conspire to do it harm.
