It Is Done: Senate Bill Passes House

About five minutes ago the House passed its agreement to the Senate's version of the bill extending the debt limit and reopening the government. Once Obama signs it... which he promised to do tonight; I saw him say it... the deplorable government shutdown is over. I've read comments to the effect that it may take most federal agencies and departments a while to get up and running again. And I've also read an estimated cost of the whole shutdown as about $24 billion. Thank you, Republican Party... thanks for less than nothing.
