Video: President Obama addresses nation following 16-day shutdown

US President Barack Obama addressed the nation on the morning of October 17 after an 11th hour deal that ended a 16-day government shutdown. While Obama called for a spirit of cooperation within the government, he also noted that the shutdown had damaged the confidence of the American people. He said: “That’s not a surprise that the American people are completely fed up with Washington…There was no economic rationale for all of this.” Credit: Youtube/The White House
