President Barack Obama signed into law a deal approved by Congress to reopen the federal government, ending a 16-day shutdown.

The Senate voted 81-18; The House voted 285-144. Only Republicans opposed the deal in each chamber.

President Barack Obama signed a budget bill early Thursday morning to reopen the government as well as raised the debt ceiling; which left Obamacare virtually untouched.
