There cannot be, and should not be, any kind of work - around. Money is either appropriated for the government to operate, or it isn't. And Congressional Republicans are ultimately to blame. Sure Trump is being an idiot, but they are letting him. Congress can pass an appropriations bill and override a veto any time they want. They still choose to back their chosen bozo. I don't want bad things to happen to people because of these idiots, but I think it would be much much worse if they were insulated from the consequences of their idiotic actions.
