Congress' vote to reopen the government is only a temporary truce
KFDM News - It's only a temporary truce, but Congress has voted to end a 16-day government shutdown and to raise the government's borrowing limit.
The Senate voted first, a bipartisan 81-18 at mid evening. That cleared the way for a final 285-144 vote in the Republican-controlled House about two hours later on the legislation.

The legislation would permit the Treasury to borrow normally through Feb. 7 or perhaps a month longer, and fund the government through Jan. 15.
More than 2 million federal workers would be paid -- those who had remained on the job and those who had been furloughed. The votes came hours before a national default.
