Government shutdown cost US economy $11 billion in the short run

The Congressional Budget Office estimated the 35-day shutdown subtracted about $11 billion in growth from the economy in December and January. It estimates the showdown shaved 0.1 percentage points off GDP in the 2018 fourth quarter and 0.2 percentage points in the first quarter of 2019.

Who fucking cares!?!? 700 billion to bail out criminal banks. Tens of billions to bail out an auto company that made bad decisions for decades and should have gone belly up. Hundreds of billions for a bullshit healthcare scheme. WHO FUCKING CARES!
