The Republican battle plan for defunding Obamacare while keeping the government operating.
What makes me skeptical is their fear of having the government shut down, a fear that somehow does not worry the Democrats. While Obama and the Democrats are quite willing to shut everything down to save Obamacare, the Republicans don’t seem to have the same courage. Under these circumstances, they will likely lose the battle.
And why is it that everyone assumes the Republicans will be blamed for the shutdown when they seem to be the ones most interested in avoiding it?
Update: The House has now voted to defund Obamacare but fund the goverment.
Note that the Democrats in the House have once again voted in support of Obamacare, a law that is very clearly destroying the health insurance business.
