MAGA Republicans have paralyzed the the American government for three weeks. What did it cost you?

This is the longest that Congress has been rudderless since 1971, when it took 18 days to elect a speaker. – NBC

“Legislative business in the House has been halted as Republicans struggle to unite behind a speaker. That includes work on legislation to fund the government and avoid a shutdown that will begin in mid-November if no action is taken. Also frozen is any consideration of an aid package to Israel, something that President Biden has said is an urgent priority…” – NY Times

Congressional reps get paid $174,000 every year – even when they are not working on legislation. How much are tax payers spending on this clown show? Find out with this online calculator. Adjust the number of reps and the number of days MAGA reps have paralyzed the government to revise the calculation. The default values on the calculator are 20 days (as of Oct 23) and 25 MAGA reps.

Chilling preview of what MAGA rule would look like if Trump returns to power

“Having failed to shut down the government, but succeeded in axing Ukraine aid, a handful of Trump acolytes on Capitol Hill set out to cripple the U.S. government by other means. Led by MAGA Rep. Matt Gaetz, whose narcissism trumps Trump, these GOP hard-liners axed their own House speaker — ousting Kevin McCarthy with no sign they can find a successor.

Trump, meanwhile, was denouncing the judge who ruled his companies had engaged in big-time fraud. To top that, the former president effectively accused the departing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, America’s top military officer, General Mark Milley, of treason, and posted on Truth Social that he deserved “DEATH.” This outrageous threat from the likely GOP candidate for president forced Milley to take ” appropriate measures ” to protect himself and his family.

America’s allies looked on in shock while its enemies had good reason to cheer.” – Times Free Press

How the MAGA CLOWN SHOW CALCULATOR was created

This calculator was created with the free Calconic app in a few minutes. It uses a simple formula:

It uses a daily rate of $477/day which corresponds to dividing an congress person’s annual salary of $174,000 by 365 days.
Users adjust the number of MAGA Clowns and the number of days that they have shut down the U.S. Government.
The amount is calculated immediately and displayed at the bottom.
