Re: Just an idea
Or you just have a permanent shut down.
Agencies like TSA, DHS, the nuclear bit of DOE are rolled into the DoD and get funding.
Those workers in agencies you want to keep (IRS, SEC) are "paid" their regular salary in the form of 99year interest free loans every two weeks from the Army/Navy credit unions .
The fed credit unions are then "bailed out" - there is never any problem with paying banks.
Then all the agencies that certain Republicans have wanted to remove (FCC, consumer protection, FDA, DOE etc) will close when it becomes obvious to their staff that they are never going to get paid
