    Just after midnight Thursday morning, President Obama signed a bill to end the 16-day government shutdown and extended the debt limit just in time to avert a fiscal crisis.


     


    It was good news for hundreds of thousands of furloughed federal employees who began returning to work Thursday morning. But as the smoke begins to clear, there's no question: There were far more losers than winners in the shutdown of 2013. And its long-term effects on the nation's economy, tourism, veterans and the country's most vulnerable Americans definitely left a mark.


     


    For those who think the shutdown wasn't all that bad, think again.

    The shut down was like a mini purge.
