On a rare Saturday session (now Sunday); in a not-too-surprising vote down party lines, the House has voted in favor of the continued-military-funding, medical-device-tax-repealing, Obamacare-delaying continuing resolution that keeps the government paid until December 15th…
- *HOUSE PASSES 231-192 OBAMACARE DELAY IN U.S. SPENDING BILL
- *HOUSE VOTES 423-0 TO FUND TROOPS IF GOVERNMENT SHUTS DOWN
Now it’s off to the Senate and Harry Reid’s ‘over-my-dead-body’ as the White House prepares for Government Shutdown.. (and/or veto) with little (or no) time to cobble together a last-minute deal.
Of course this will be the meme for tomorrow…
Dems principle argument: anyone who votes for GOP amendments to funding bill "is voting for a shutdown," says Rep Nita Lowey, D-NY.
