House Votes Set the Stage on Government Shutdown

Los Angeles Times (09/20/13) Michael A. Memoli

Using the threat of a government shutdown as a bargaining chip, House Republicans voted today on a measure they hope will stymie the Affordable Care Act. Much of the U.S. government will cease operation at the end of September unless Congress passes a continuing resolution to “keep the lights on.” The House vote is intended to do just that—extend the existing funding levels for another 75 days. However, there is a catch. The resolution includes an amendment to defund the ACA.

“The law is a train wreck, and it’s going to raise costs. It’s destroying American jobs, and it must go,” House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-OH) said yesterday.
