Once again it is proven that Republicans cannot be trusted with power or money. Shutting down the government cost this country an estimated $24 billion. Tea Party freaks...what a joke and how sad.

The head freak or clown is our own Ted Cruz. He voted to let us go into default, so did John Cornyn. Im certain Stockman did so in the house.

24 billion, can you imagine what we could have done with the 24 billion dollars wasted on a Republican political stunt?

Trillion or billion, both entirely are too much to be wasted. Pray tell exactly what was accomplished by wasting 24 billion dollars, other than adding to the existing debt, causing a hardship on American families, and just p---ing people off?

EXACTLY. The last count I heard is that the cost was a staggering 30+ billion for this ficasco. Was anything accomplished? NO. Do we still have Obamacare? YES. Will the same thing happen in January? Probably. Are the American people happy? HELL NO

This had absolutely nothing to do about Obama Care. It was about the President wanting to raise the debt limit. Nothing more.

OMG you can't be serious, did you hear nothing that was said by Ted Cruz? Had Obama been willing to have Obam Care as you call it defunded the House would have raised the debt limit so fast it would have made your head spin. HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH OBAMA CARE MY A--!

Exactly right!

These imbeciles cry over a few billion dollars that would have been spent anyway... while Obama puts us another trillion or two dollars in debt this year... again.

Fed once again you are full of s--t. Trillions start with billions, billions start with millions, millions start with thousands which start with hundreds and so on right down to pennies. Waste and over spending is waste and over spending. Hell dumba-- give me one billion, I can buy an island and forget about stupid people like you.

Stopping Obamacare was the goal. To prevent, in your own words, "adding to the existing debt, causing a hardship on American families, and just p---ing people off."

The ultimate goal is single payer. How well will a single payer system of healthcare being run by our govt function? If we use the first week of the Obamacare exchanges as the metric, then the answer is FU***NG HORRIBLY.

Are you paying attention to the stories of Obamacare supporters finding out that their insurance premiums have skyrocketed? Have you heard any stories about how Obamacare has magically reduced the COSTS of healthcare at the point of sale? No, you haven't.

But still, let's bitch about a wasted 20 something billion dollars when our national debt is 17 Trillion and climbing, and the real national debt when entitlements are added is closer to 100 Trillion.

Can you tell me where that $25 billion was spent?

Or... are you just regurgitating someone else's propaganda after swallowing it hook line and sinker?

I would believe it if you told me Obama spent it closing down parks, trails and memorials.

How much WAS spent closing those things down anyway?

Most of them pay for themselves and then some.

What was the point of shutting down profitable National Parks?

I bet none of the Obama's did without any of their servants... nor did they do without any of their perks.

Yet... you sit here calling me stupid while you get upset about $24 billion fictional dollars spent on the shutdown... while completely ignoring the trillions and trillions Obama has put this country in debt!!!

That is complete ignorance.

In fact... you're so completely ignorant... you're pissed off because the Republicans did not just roll over and sign for a couple more trillion of debt!!!

Ignorance!!

Complete ignorance!

You would sell your soul to please Obama... you're certainly selling out your country.

Oh... and keep your vote... use it to vote for someone that has already sold you out before they were even elected.

I'd rather lose by one vote... than win by one vote and know it was because an ignorant person like yourself voted for me.

Hell Fed anyone who votes for you is an ignorant person. AND Pinche, yes let's do bitch about twentyfour billion right along with the seventeen trillion waste is waste. I understand your point but twentyfour billion lost, wasted, or what ever you want to call it is inexcuseable. Add the billions up and they become trillions before you can say scat, so yes let's bitch about twentyfour billion right along with the seventeen trillion.

Fear not, some TeaParty congressmen are already gearing up for another shutdown in Jan.
Don't learn from their mistakes.

What’s the cause of the federal government’s huge budget deficits? The specific reasons as to why this state of affairs exists are a mix of human decisions, economic circumstance, and the cumulative effect of time.

Let’s start with 2001. That year, the Congressional Budget Office looked out over the decade to come and saw ahead nothing but blue skies and black ink. It predicted that between 2001 and 2011 the US would run budget surpluses totaling $5.6 trillion.

That didn’t happen. Instead, the Bush Adminisration racked up $6.1 trillion in deficits over that period.

Why? The crash of the Great Recession. This meant that less tax money came in than anticipated. Overall, CBO said that about $3.3 trillion of the $11.7 debt can be attributed to “economic and technical changes” to anticipated revenues.

There were the tax cuts. President George W. Bush instigated most of these, but President Obama also pushed through Congress a payroll tax cut intended to pump money into an economy ruined during Bush II.

Tax cuts accounted for a further $2.8 trillion of the $11.7 trillion discrepancy.(The big kahuna here is Bush’s 2001 reduction in income-tax rates, which alone accounts for about $1.2 trillion in revenue foregone over the decade.)

Between 2001 and 2011, increased discretionary spending amounted to about $3 trillion. This category includes defense spending related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, homeland security upgrades in the US, spending on food stamps and other hard-times safety net programs, and other general budget categories that are supposed to be approved annually by Congress.

Mandatory spending – a category that includes the Medicare prescription-drug program approved under Bush, the TARP bank bailout, and President Obama’s economic stimulus package – went up by about $1.4 trillion during the period in question.(This type of outflow is called “mandatory” not because we had to do it, but because it results from formulas established by Congress instead of appropriated dollar totals.)

So, you want to know why there is an $11 trillion federal debt...blame it on the Republicans.
