House Republicans passed their stopgap funding bill Friday to keep government open while terminating the new health care law, setting up a final showdown next week with Senate Democrats and President Obama who have firmly rejected that.
The 230-189 vote, which split almost exclusively along party lines, is the precursor to the big action next week, when the Senate is expected to strip out the health care provisions and send the bill back to the House — where Republicans will have to decide whether they can accept it at that point.

Never get past the senate and certainly will never be signed.... But at least they tried because they believe if they don't it will be a major campaign issue for their next election.
they have voted something like 40 times already to defund repeal obamacare.
that little piss ant Harry Reid, won't let it come to the floor.
this makes me think that there are more in the senate that want to do away with obamacare than that is being let known.
if they think that they have the majority in the senate to defeat the bill, why not vote.
they know that the true story will come out of how who stands on what and where the weakness is.
But on Wednesday, as House Republican leaders unveiled their latest plan for sinking Obamacare -- tying a measure to defund the law to a must-pass resolution that keeps the government running -- Cruz thanked House Republicans for their fight, and said they're on their own.
The wheels are coming off the clown car that is the modern Republican Party. House and Senate GOP leaders are sniping at each other, on Twitter and even more nastily, via their congressional aides.
Do you understand the changes the ACA will make?
