House GOP: Defund Obamacare or Shutdown government

The U.S. is facing a government shutdown - again.

And it's just 12 days away if Congress can't reach a deal. It's embarrassing, avoidable and will ensure our count to getting back America's AAA debt rating isn't even worth keeping. (It's been 774 days, by the way, since we lost it.)

Washington is simply too dysfunctional to govern.

Today, both Speaker Boehner and President Obama said they want to avoid a shutdown.

But the truth is, both side are okay with a shutdown if they don't get their way.

Beohner says the House will pass a budget bill this week that defunds the President's health care law.

That's a nonstarter and the President is making political hay of it.

So is a shutdown inevitable?

OutFront tonight, Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz.
