After sixteen days since the government shutdown, we are happy to say it’s finally over. Congress passed legislation to fund the government and avert a default Wednesday night. That night, President Obama signed the bill, officially reopening the government. National parks, federal agencies, monuments, and museums are open to the public again. Although in Chicago, the Internal Revenue Service Office was still on lockdown. Security was still turning away people who weren’t making payments up until Friday. There are still quite a few wrinkles that need to ironed out, and the senates are still at a bidding war over the Obamacare plan. Americans shouldn’t breathe a sigh of relief just yet. Despite the end of the government shutdown, tensions are high and the house is still at war.
