  •  Costs, monetary & more (12+ / 0-)


    While this state administration trumped up incident will pale in cost to the Government shutdown, Billions lost, just think of the money and more lost in these days of retaliation gridlock on a, supposedly, busiest traffic bridge in the world, some of the same loses.

    Lost work time, and wages not able to recoup, and thus businesses costs  in many ways.

    Wasted fuel costs, at high fuel prices, with the mostly once middle class workers long in stagnant/falling wage times as well as added vehicle maintenance costs, especially engines and brakes. And the rise in polluted air breathed from idling vehicles. Lost time in business deliveries.

    Family values time, leaving early to try and beat the gridlock and trying to get home to the kids activities and family time. And so much more.

    As well as the, not all democratic, kids lost school time and more related to them.

    And we've been hearing about the possible tragic events, to individuals, as to the first responders and emergency needs.

    This is how them so called 'republicans' think?, it's all about not wanting to contribute, taxes, but getting all government does, let any others pay for, and not giving a damn as to the actions and then reaction from, especially monetary, which then costs much much much.....more in more then monetary, like their wars and results of!!!
