House Votes to Delay Obamacare; Government Shutdown Looming

housevote632

The House of Representatives voted to delay the Affordable Health Care Act for one year.

House Republicans pushed through a spending plan early Sunday morning that would delay Obamacare for a year and repeal its tax on medical devices, increasing the chances of a government shutdown Tuesday because Senate Democrats have said they will reject the measure.

Passage of the amendments sends a temporary budget resolution back to the Senate, where Democrats vow to again block the anti-Obamacare amendments.

President Barack Obama has added a veto threat to that position.

Without a deal, a government shutdown will begin at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.
