The Republican led House, unable to come up with a budget, have passed a Continuing Resolution (C.R.) to enable the Government not to shut down. They have extended the time, of the C.R. to allow an additional week before Government shut-down. If they have not been able to come up with a budget in half a year, it would seem to be the height of optimism to be able to do it in one week, however, it certainly is possible, and, of course, time will tell. It always does.
