Was the damage done by the government shutdown worth it?
Definitely! It showed that the House is willing to stand their ground and do what's right even if it's an unpopular position
No way. The thousands of people who went without a paycheck where not worth anything the GOP was trying to accomplish. Holding people's livelihoods hostage is never worth it.
There was nothing TO be gained from it, so no.
Wait, there was damage done?
That's exactly what I was thinking.
No, but we still have the ACA.
Now we have some debates coming up to cut spending and I HOPE they come up with something good and reasonable.
