So, this here government shutdown and brush with default on our debts cost us $24 billion, according to Standard and Poor's.
We hear millions and billions all the time, but I decided to calculate what that meant for my family.
According to the American Enterprise Institute, there were 140.5M taxpayers recently. p.s. don't read the article because AEI's bullshit may make you want to puke.
Doing the math: $24B/140.5M = Roughly $171 for each of us.
For this. What a joke.
