    The estimated cost of the shutdown is $24 billion.
    That would have bought three aircraft carriers.
    Now the rudumblicans are going to want to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid in 3, 2, 1…..

    I think the republicans would find support for cutting their salaries by $24 Billion.

    Mr. Boehnor is the chief reason the shutdown occurred. Had he let the senate bill that passed with 100% of the senate go to the floor for a house vote, the shutdown would not have occurred.
    The ONLY point on which Mr. Boehnor’s party would talk was the ACA. There were NO negotiations because the ACA was always off of the table. The shut down did not need to happen.
    That said, I am pleased Mr. Catalino has a democrat sitting with the Republican as the magician’s assistant. The Republicans are using tools the Dems have used in the past and both of these cannibalistic parties share in the insanity that has brought our nation to this convoluted crossroads. Gerrymandering and Citizens United is now allowing politicians to choose their voters and voters can only hope that the media and monied interests will pick a politician they can vote for rather than the too often event where we have two bad choices and must vote against the worst one.
    I met the Republican running for state delegate a few days ago. He was going door to door and we talked for nearly 30 minutes. I’m certain that if I talked to his rival, I would find as many points of disagreement on issues as I did with the one at my door. At the end, I felt shame. He’s doing some good things for good reasons, and seemed to have an open mind on the points where we disagreed. He invited me to come and see him if he won so we could talk some more. But he left knowing that I had painted him with “Red Paint” out of the fear I have come to have for the way Republicans are conducting themselves on the 9 issues that are important to me. I was pigeonholing this man based on his party, not HIM. I don’t know if he was a good ‘salesman’ who was just talking the talk, or if he was the real person I think he is, but because of Cuccinelli, Jackson, Cruz, and Boehnor, I’m voting for a political newcomer with no previous political experience simply because he’s not republican. And that’s wrong. It’s also what the tribalism these two parties have created wants. Pick a team and stick with them.
    It makes me sick.
    but sadly,

    Our lone representative spends roughly a million per year on lawyers to fight his misdeeds.
    Mostly he is in trouble for shady acts done to repay favors to those who help him send pork to his voter base.
    He will be elected until he dies of old age. No candidate has ever come close to touching him, he campaigns on his ability to take.
    He will get 80% of the vote next year as well.
    From poor schoolteacher/trapper to multimillionaire merely by becoming a Representative in congress.
    Which apparently is only a part time job.

    More of Barry’s low expectation, “new normal” vision for America.

    You forgot the people laid off because their jobs depended on nearby gov’t facilities. It was a job killer. Oh, and the donkey wasn’t to blame.

    Ken, Ken, Ken… Nobody did get hurt at all. Except our future. Obamacare is going to be the giant foot that crushes us all. At least I have guns and military training to fight back.

    Come on, Catalino: Get real. Get the DONKEY off the stage and put a RHINO or a MASTODON up there working with the ordinary going-extinct-if-nothing-changes ELEPHANT. We read the papers; give us some verisimilitude.

    It wasn’t a total loss. McConnell got more funding for his dam project.
