WASHINGTON D.C. (KGUN9-TV) - Volleying from the Senate to the House -- the spending bill to keep the government running, is now a political game of hot potato. Neither side willing to budge over a plan linked to funding Obamcare.
At noon Saturday, House Speaker Boehner met with members of his party trying to hammer out a deal to keep the government running.
Friday's senate passed bill funds the government and Obamacare -- many republicans are opposed to Obamacare, but the democratic senate says its time to move on.
House leaders planned to bring a new version to a vote...the revised spending plan includes...
*A year delay of the affordable care act
*Repeal of the medial device tax
*Funding of the government until dec. 15
*The military to be paid in case of a shutdown.
Senate dems have stated any changes to the bill they passed Friday would be a non-starter.
As the divide continues and the possibility of a government shutdown looms-- the president spent Saturday golfing.
That is, after he issued this warning, "Past government shutdowns have disrupted the economy. This shutdown would, too. Knock it off, pass a budget, and move on."
