      Actually it doesn’t. There’s quite a bit that can’t be done without, at the minimum, the signatures of certain appointed positions.

      In the sense that the government keeps the lights on, pays it’s staff, continues to disburse money for existing contracts, the courts stay open, etc — yes.

      Which is, one would think, how you want it. To use the much-vaunted “business” analogy, you wouldn’t want a company to be unable to do any productive work when it’s been freshly bought out and the new board members still in flux.Report
