GOP owes America $24 billion|

--

---- — Standard & Poor’s, the financial ratings agency, has estimated that the federal government shutdown took at least $24 billion out of the U.S. economy. The Republican Party’s reckless behavior caused the shutdown. It should be made to pay.

On behalf of the American people, someone needs to sue the Republican Party to recover that $24 billion. Absent that, the American people will have to seek retribution themselves through the ballot box.
