Welcoming furloughed federal employees back to work Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden said he hoped Washington had learned to not repeat the mistakes that brought the nation's capital to a grinding halt. “There's no guarantees of anything,” Biden said when asked whether leaders would again face the same problems in a few months. “I hope everybody walks away with a lesson that this is unnecessary and I hope we can regain the trust of the American people.”
