Government Reopened

The federal government is reopened. The deal involves a three week continuing resolution in exchange for six years of CHIP (children's health care) funding. Next round, Democrats will try to wrangle out a DACA deal.

Politically, it was a little ding in Trump's credibility, and in the credit of the United States of America, although the headlines are playing this three day shutdown as a Democratic Party loss. I'm not convinced, however, as, bit by bit, Democrats are methodically accomplishing what they have set out to achieve and muted Republican accomplishments.
