House Republicans have made a move to avert government shutdown — for at least a week
The House of Representatives has made a move to avert a government shutdown with only days before Congress’s April 28 spending deadline.

As it stands, Congress has until midnight on Friday to pass a spending bill, or the government will run out of money and shut down. But late Wednesday night Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, (R-NJ), who chairs the House Appropriations Committee, introduced a continuing resolution to provide one week of stop-gap funding, effectively extending the shutdown deadline to May 5, to buy Congress more time to negotiate a spending bill. The CR also includes funding for former miners’ health care and benefits by continuing funding for the Health Benefits for Miners Act.

If the CR passes the House and Senate — as it is expected to — it will successfully prevent a government shutdown for at least one more week.

Question on this. If memory serves, if it is not passed, and there is not enough money to pay all the bills, doesn't the president get to decide where the money goes? I mean, couldn't he theoretically withhold money from things like the department of education, energy, and planned parenthood, while continuing to pay to the critical services? That might get democratic attention.
