(CNSNews.com) – The only real chance of blocking Obamacare is for Congress to pass a continuing resolution that deprives it of money, even though a government shutdown would be the likely result.

But that appears to be a step too far for some Republicans, including House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

“Listen, our goal here is not to shut down the government,” Boehner told reporters on Tuesday. “Our goal is to cut spending and to stop Obamacare. And I believe that the strategy that was outlined to members this morning accomplishes that.”

Press reports say the Republican strategy calls for the House to pass a continuing resolution that funds Obamacare, as well as a separate measure that would amend the CR to defund Obamacare. The Democrat-led Senate, however, would never pass the second resolution. Yet House Republicans could claim they did pass a measure to defund Obamacare.
