After 16 days, the partial government shutdown is finally over. Look back at the 17 other times our country has closed its doors.
Oct. 1, 2013 to Oct. 17, 2013 (16 days): A Republican-controlled House passed a budget plan that included a provision to defund President Barack Obama's signature health care plan, which had major provisions scheduled to start Oct. 1. The Democratically-controlled Senate refused to pass the funding bill with health care amendments attached. A shutdown commenced, and the health care law still went into effect. More than two weeks later, Congress reached a shutdown-ending, debt ceiling-raising deal that left the Affordable Care Act virtually unscathed.
