While the president and Congressional leaders are patting themselves on the back, and everyone declaring their party winners in ending the 16 day government shutdown, the American people and businesses are licking their wounds from a $24 billion dollar hit in the economy that will surely set the country back from any previous gains made with the economy.
And all of this could have been accomplished weeks ago if House Speaker Boehner had done what he did yesterday, because what was agreed upon was what was presented by the administration weeks ago.
My fear is all we have accomplished is delay another possible fight and shutdown in January. If this happens, I’m not too sure how the American public is going to take a second round of political BS. We may see some marches on Washington that may not be too polite.
