House Tries Again to Fund Government

September 29th, 2013

Late last night, members of the U.S. House of Representatives passed another version of the government funding authorization, with the proviso that ObamaCare be delayed for one year. The new Continuing Resolution passed by a vote of 231 to 192. (8 members of Congress failed to vote, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi who was busy with social priorities back in California).

The last section of the ObamaCare language specifically prohibits the Department of Health & Human Services from enforcing its Contraceptive/Abortifacient Mandate on American employers who object for reasons of conscience.

Both Idaho Congressmen – Raul Labrador and Mike Simpson – voted for the latest attempt by House Republicans to keep the government operating past the September 31st fiscal year deadline.

Democrat leader Harry Reid has indicated that he will not convene the Senate today to even consider the revised compromise language adopted by the House of Representatives.
