End The Shutdown

My fellow Americans, I am very proud to announce today that we have reached a deal to end the shutdown and re-open the federal government.  As everyone knows, I have a very powerful alternative, but I didn't want to use it at this time.  Hopefully it will be unnecessary.  I want to thank all of the incredible federal workers, and their amazing families, who have shown such extraordinary devotion in the face of this recent hardship.
