A dubious anniversary:  one-year ago today, House Republicans who were bent on repealing the Affordable Care Act forced a 16-day government shutdown in an unsuccessful attempt to get their way.  This irresponsible and destructive act hurt millions of Americans, costing our economy an estimated $24 billion and 120,000 jobs. Federal loans to small businesses were halted, transportation and energy projects were delayed, job training for returning veterans was disrupted, hundreds of patients were prevented from enrolling in NIH clinical trials; and nearly two-thirds of the CDC was furloughed.  After 16-days, 62% of the GOP caucus still voted against reopening the government.  At some point, House Republicans must choose problem solving over dysfunction and join Democrats to invest in roads, rails, bridges and broadband – paid for by closing loopholes for corporations shipping jobs overseas; empower Americans staggered by student loan debt to refinance their loans a lower rates; and ensure women receive the respect of equal pay for equal work.  We can do all of this and more if we have the political will.
