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.

    Fastest way to get rid of someone panhandling change: Tell them that they don't need to beg for your hard earned money, that they need to jump in your truck because you're on your way to work!

    Ford: Fix Or Repair Daily. Mopar: Mound Of Parts And Rust. Chevrolet: Chatters Heavily, Every Valve Rattles, Oil Leaks Every Time. Toyota : TOwing Your Truck's @$$. I have 385,000 miles of Chevy dragging useage on my 10 year old Tacoma and nothing, not even a burned out headlight has gone wrong with it.

    A Chevy S10 is actually an Isuzu Hombre, a Ford Ranger is actually a Mazda B2200, a Dodge Stealth is actually a Mitsubishi 3000 GT. My Toyota is more American made than your "American" car.

      And Hamsta is actually on welfare. One who whines incessantly and could stay on point if he was impaled on it.

    This happens at the end of every fiscal year, and has been doing so for decades. It's the way the appropriations are written, Hamsta, that they can't carry a surplus over into the next FY. Congress has needed to change this for a long time. And this goes for both parties. Laziness on Congress's part.
