Shutdown Watch

Meet the New Bill, not the same as the old bill.

Tell me why shouldn’t the American people get the same delay as all the cronies?

The collective will assimilate you … You do not speak ill of the collective.

The bill delays Obamacare and also includes the expected repeal of the medical device tax:

Boehner didn’t speak on the House floor during the debate before the amendments passed.

“The House has again passed a plan that reflects the American people’s desire to keep the government running and stop the president’s health care law,” Boehner said in a post-vote statement. Repealing the medical device tax will save jobs and delaying the president’s health care law for all Americans is only fair given the exemptions the White House has granted to big businesses and insurance companies.”

He added: “Now that the House has again acted, it’s up to the Senate to pass this bill without delay to stop a government shutdown.”

A new wrinkle was added into the mix by Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, when the Conscience Clause for covered contraception costs was added back into the legislation.
