Why not a savings?

Los OsosOctober 30, 2013 

The Democrats are saying that the Tea Party shutdown cost the taxpayers $24 billion. How can that be? I didn’t think it was possible to waste money any faster than the government does when it is fully operating.

How could they possibly spend $24 billion more when they are shut down? Could our system be that screwed up? Looks to me like there should have been a taxpayer savings. Oh well, we’ll get it all back through Obamacare, or borrow it from China, or just print a few billion more pieces of paper with dollar signs printed on them.

I think I’ll go have some tea.
