One year ago today, the Republicans in the House of Representatives shut down the United States government, ON PURPOSE.
It cost our economy tens of billions of dollars, put hundreds of thousands out of work, delayed payout of government benefits, stopped important government functions, made the U.S. a laughing stock, and pretty much pissed off millions of Americans. But hey, they had a great reason.
To keep millions of Americans from getting affordable health insurance.
Republicans! Doing the wrong things for the wrong reasons!
Happy Anniversary, assholes.
