What is more embarrassing then the shut down is the lack of people who care we are 17 trillion in debt. We spend 20% more then we take in but only a few people seem to care.
I care about the debt but a pointless shutdown of the government which costs the country $1.5 billion is not a fix.

The debt should be a concern for both parties because both parties are at fault. Some of the debt happened under Obama. Some of it happened as a result of the crash of the Bush economy. Some of it happened because Bush charged things like the Iraq war to our Chinese credit card. Everyone is to blame and everyone should be concerned.

“This proves that when we work together, we can come up with a totally unsatisfactory solution to a completely unnecessary crisis.” This link leads to a short but very funny satire of Congress piece:

Because you asked:
How much did the shutdown cost the economy?

And 9 things that cost less than the shutdown:

I recently listened to science Friday and they said there is concern over intergovernmental collaborative efforts as well as recruitment into NASA, NFS, EPA, NSA and other science agencies

Re: So... The Government is Shut Down...

I didn't want to start a thread on this, though I probably should've done an All things Russia type thread.

Russian finance minister warns on spending as crisis deepens
Quote:
"Regardless of having already curbed 2015 spending, we will ask parliament to cut by 10 percent all expenditure apart from defense spending," [Finance Minister Anton] Siluanov added.
Somehow I doubt they will have as lively a debate as that single line would spark here.
