Congressional fist pumps

Speaker of the House John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) pumps his fist after leaving a meeting of House Republicans. Congress voted Oct. 16 to end a 16-day government shutdown and allow the Treasury to continue borrowing to pay the nation's bills. President Obama signed the budget deal shortly thereafter.
