The government shutdown is about to be no more. On Monday, members of Congress reached an agreement to end the impasse and get the government running again.

The agreement gives six more years of funding to the Children's Health Insurance Program. In addition, it pushes the debate on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program into February.

The Senate voted 81-18 to end the shutdown. Now, the stopgap bill will go to the House, where its expected to quickly pass.

While that means that active-duty troops, military families and federal employees don't have to be concerned about their pay anymore, some aren't so happy about it.

Multiple members of the media spoke out against Democrats following the news.
