Government Is Open For Business!

The Government  is open for business! 

The government reopened its doors Today after a battle-weary Congress approved a bipartisan measure to end a 16-day partial shutdown and avert the possibility of an economy-jarring default on U.S. obligations.

Early this morning, the President signed the measure, which the House and Senate passed late last night, ending a brawl with Republicans who tried to use the must-pass legislation to mount a last-ditch effort to derail the president's landmark health care law and demand concessions on the budget.

The White House directed all agencies to reopen promptly and in an orderly fashion. Furloughed federal employees across the country are expected to return to work Thursday.

One thing people are happy about is the re-opening of NASA, just in case giant meteors are hurling towards the earth, we know when to send up Bruce Willis and his band of muchachos to break it up with a nuclear bomb and an Aerosmith CD. 

Museums open Today, and the National Zoo opens tomorrow.
