Congress is back at work looking for ways to keep the government going after forced spending cuts went into effect Friday.

House Speaker John Boehner says the House will pass a bill this week to keep the government open through the end of the fiscal year. 

Boehner says lawmakers must find a way to cut federal spending.

"Spending is the problem here in Washington and our goal is to cut spending, not to shut the government down. The president agreed last week that that should be our goal and I'm hopeful that this continuing resolution will find easy passage both in the House and the Senate," Boehner says.

Boehner says spending is "the biggest threat to the future of our country."
