House Throws Down Gauntlet: Delay ObamaCare or Shutdown Govt
Looks like we are heading for a government shutdown.
Check it out:
UPDATE: The House voted 231-192 to keep the government open and delay Obamacare. Harry Reid has said that the Senate will reject the measure.
On Saturday, House GOP Leadership announced plans to take up the Senate stop-gap spending bill and attach a one-year delay of ObamaCare and the individual mandate. The House is also likely to attach a measure continuing funding of the military in the event the Senate fails to act on the larger funding bill by the Monday midnight deadline. The House action makes it likely that the government will shut down, at least for a few days, on Tuesday.
On Friday, the Senate passed a stop-gap spending bill that would fund the government through November 15. The government’s current spending authorization expires at midnight on Monday. If agreement on new spending authority isn’t reached by then, which seems likely, most parts of the government would shut down.
