    The House or Senate can just refuse to fund a program and the others go along or shut down the government.

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/... - look at the list of shut downs when Reagan was president and there was a Republican Senate and a Democratic House - the mirror image of the current situation.

    Unlike the Republicans, the Democrats also managed the impressive feat of shutting down the government 5 times in just four years while they controlled the presidency, the House, and the Senate.  There's a reason that the Carter years are remembered with such horror by the people who lived through them.
