Great Job Congress. You Accomplished…Nothing After All That

There’s finally a deal to get the government back up and running.  And from the looks of it, it looks like it was a big waste of time.  What did two weeks of government shutdown accomplish?  Here’s the breakdown:

  • Ted Cruz made a name for himself and raised a lot of money.
  • Mitch McConnell’s home state got a $3B earmark.
  • We all got to overlook how bad the introduction of Obamacare has been.
  • We guaranteed that we’ll have the same discussion on January 15th, 2014 when the government will again need to approve more spending.
  • We guaranteed we’ll hit the debt ceiling by February 7th, 2014 which gives more politicians time to grandstand, raise money and force us to suffer through their intolerable TV appearances.
  • Oh, and it’s estimated that Q4 GDP will be shaved by about 0.5%.  ALL FOR NO REASON.

Did I miss anything?
