What Democrats’ Cost Americans for Shutdown

In total, Vittert estimates that the shutdown cost the American public approximately $40 billion, which she notes would have paid for “the entire wall to be built and maintained for 40 years.”

Instead of providing the Trump administration with $5.7 billion for the wall, the Democrats opted to allow the government shutdown to continue to the point where it cost the American public seven times that amount, and America got nothing in return.
