House delays Obamacare; shutdown looms

In a move that makes a government shutdown more likely, House Republicans approved a spending plan Sunday morning that would delay Obamacare for a year and repeal its tax on medical devices.

The temporary budget resolution now goes back to the Senate, where Democrats have consistently said any changes to President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law is a deal-killer.

On top of that, Obama has already issued a veto threat.

If Washington can't reach a deal, a government shutdown will begin at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.

    Does Roem think that an Art by any other name is still Roem? Is Roem not able to follow a thread to its conclusion?

    Has anyone else seen the interview with Wolf and Sen. (Rep) Ted Cruz, does he seem like his head is going to explode? He seems like he is a maniac. Frantic. He has to be doing some kind of speed.

    Thank you Tea Party. Hope you're happy. You can crap on us little people all you want. But remember, we pick up your trash, we deliver the food to you fancy resturants and gourmet grocery stores. We process you bills, deliver your gas for your high end cars, cut your grass, clean your house, fix you cars, build your appliances, make your clothes. I could go on and on. So, while you're sitting on your high horse, remember, you need us to support your life style. You make, or made, your money off the labor of the very people that you could care less about. One more thing, it's the little people that make the big people big. That's why we, the majority of the AMERICAN people voted for President Obama. By the way, I'm a white male, military veteran, I work a 40 hour a week job to support my 2 boys. I receive no Gov assistants, nor do I expect any. I believe ALL Americans should have access to the same healthcare as our Politicians. You make plenty of money, just try not to forget the little people. As I said, you need us more than we need you!
