President Obama has threatened to veto a continuing resolution that would fund government through the rest of the fiscal year. The Hill\'s Bob Cusack explains how the CR battle has gotten this far.
Federal workers are under a two-year pay freeze, Congress is looking at furloughs and pension cuts and yet, we are told, these are the good old days. Things may get tougher for you and your agency. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says while it may not be the end of the world, this is definitely not just a drill.
Secretary Robert M. Gates is warning the continuing resolution means the Pentagon could run out of money before September 30.
The continuing resolution translates into a $5.7 billion cut to the Navy.

Congress must pass another funding measure to keep the government operating past March 4. House Republicans are calling for big cuts to current spending levels. This as President Obama gets set to release his 2012 budget request February 14. We get the latest from the Hill\'s Erik Wasson.
Defense officials say a CR after the current one - expiring March 5 - could hurt 7,300 civilian jobs.
The continuing resolution expires in March, and we still have no definite word on what will happen next. How can agencies be effective with their new year goals, if the money isn\'t guaranteed? We ask the Partnership for Public Service\'s John Palguta.
The idea of retroactively cutting money that has been approved but not yet spent is one of several options under consideration. We get an update from The Hill\'s Ian Swanson.
Incoming House Speaker John Boehner says his party\'s goal is to give the government back to the people. But first, reminds the managing editor of The Hill, they\'ll need to figure out a way to fund it in 23 working days or less to avoid a shutdown.
As the new Congress and President Obama try to out-austere one another, what will happen with the 2012 budget? And, will there even be a 2011 budget or yet another continuing resolution?
What does the language in the continuing resolution mean for federal employees? AFGE\'s Jackie Simon tries to answer some of the most pressing questions around the two-year pay freeze and how the CR affects performance bonuses and step increases. OMB is expected to offer guidance in the coming weeks.
