THE SHUTDOWN IS OVER!!
Minutes ago the U.S. Congress finally passed a bill which will end the government shutdown!!!
U.S. Senators passed the bill, House Speaker John Boehner finally allowed a vote in the House, it passed, & now all President Barack Obama has to do is sign it!
(He already said he would as soon as it hits his desk!)
This means the U.S. Government will re-open immediately and the debt ceiling is suspended until at least mid-January!
Woo hoo! Congress is finally paying it's bills!!
Furloughed employees can return to work!
Sad little boys will no longer be barred from experiencing the miracle that is panda!
NASA engineers will go back to
performing secret alien autopsies at Area 51 staring at Uranus, LOLz!!
