Budget Shutdown?

Here is an article on what would happen if a continuing resolution is not passed by early March 4 on the current year's budget which is already five months old.  It is a good way to teach about CRs, the 1995-96 shutdown and even what is the difference between discretionary and non-discretionary spending.  By the way, the cover above (and here), I like to use as a way to show how Clinton "won" the shutdown and why we have not had one since.
