House Passes Funding Bill That Would Stop Obamacare
Sept. 20 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. House voted to finance the federal government through mid-December and choke off funding for President Barack Obama’s health-care law, setting up a showdown with the Senate and the White House.
The Republican-controlled House today passed, 230-189, a stopgap measure to fund government operations after current authority expires Sept. 30. The spending measure now will be sent to the Senate it will pass without defunding the health-care law, Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said yesterday. (Source: Bloomberg)
