Government Shutdown Ends

October 17, 2013 by  

Government Shutdown Ends, Congress has passed a measure to avert a threatened US default and reopen the federal government, a move intended to end a prolonged fiscal crisis that gripped the US and threatened the world economy.

The deal, however, offers only a temporary fix and does not resolve the fundamental issues of spending and deficits that divide Republicans and Democrats. It funds the government until January 15 and raises the debt ceiling until February 7, so Americans face the possibility of another government shutdown early next year.

Both the Democrat-controlled Senate and Republican-controlled House of Representatives approved the plan, with the Senate passing the measure by 81 votes to 18 and the House 285 votes to 144.

President Barack Obama signed the bill before Thursday’s deadline for Congress to increase the federal debt limit. He applauded the Senate compromise.

Speaking at the White House Wednesday evening, he said that they could “begin to lift this cloud of uncertainty and unease from our businesses and from the American people”.
