Just 10 days before the government runs out of money, Congress voted Friday to approve a temporary spending measure that would continue government operations, but eliminate funding for Obamacare.
This was the 42nd time the House voted to delay, defund or repeal the health care law.
And just like the previous 41 times, it's a not-starter in the Senate, which means we are headed for gridlock and shutdown.
President Obama shamed Republicans for the vote today.
"You don't have to threaten to blow the whole thing up if you don't get your way," Obama said in a campaign-style speech at a Ford plant in the Kansas City, Missouri area, adding that legislators in Washington were focused on politics and "trying to mess with me," rather than helping the middle class.
So, is there any way to avert a shutdown?
