Today marks the one-year anniversary of when federal offices began closing due to a Republican-forced government shutdown — that lasted 16 days — in an effort to pursue their extreme ideological agenda. A quick reminder of what the government shutdown costs America:
$24 Billion: What the shutdown cost the economy.
$2.5 Billion: What the shutdown cost taxpayers.
120,000 Jobs: The number of jobs lost due to the shutdown.
$414 Million: The estimated lost revenue to parks and surrounding communities due to the closure of 401 national parks.
Despite the deep unpopularity of the government shutdown shenanigans among the American public, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised more of the same if the GOP takes control of the upper chamber in 2015."
