House to vote on stopgap funding bill, ‘Obamacare’

WASHINGTON — The White House promised a veto of a Republican effort to gut President Barack Obama’s health care law that is part of a temporary funding bill in the House to prevent a partial government shutdown on Oct. 1.

The official policy statement issued Thursday said the GOP attempt to block “Obamacare” ‘’advances a narrow ideological agenda that threatens our economy and the interests of the middle class” and would deny “millions of hard-working, middle-class families the security of affordable health coverage.”

The veto threat was expected and wasn’t going to stop House Republicans from pressing their effort to defund the health care law.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said the House will pass a bill Friday to keep the government running while gutting Obama’s health care law.
