I am glad to see it somewhat over. I'm glad to see everyday get to go back to work as well. People should be getting their back pay checks and all. But I agree with you @ryanator that politics have to ruin peoples lives. It seems like both parties are out to try to do each party in, yet they seem to forget they they are part of a bigger party - America - and that their primary goal is for the good of this country, not personal vendettas and the cost of the American people livelihood.
