the problem should not cause the government to shutdown. Simply prioritize spending. The president has two distinct roles in this process. One to agree to spending bills. The 2nd to run the government. There should be a church/state like separation between the two roles. Absent instructions from Congress the executive has to make the decisions on how to spend the money the government has.
