The House on Friday voted largely along party lines to prohibit funding for the healthcare reform law and eliminate funding for family planning.
In a quick succession of two-minute votes, the House adopted three amendments to their stop-gap budget bill that eliminate healthcare reform funding through the end of the fiscal year. The House also approved, 240-185, an amendment barring federal Title X family planning grants that was aimed squarely at Planned Parenthood.

Don’t forget, the Senate can put it back in conference...................
I believe they only voted to stop DISCRETIONARY spending for Obamacare. The $100 bil in spending Nancy Pelosi stuck into the original bill marches on.
This is a big FD!
Drudge has a headline that says no funding for Obamacare either.
Excellent. Now on to the Senate, where it is so very much easier to reach out and touch each and every one of those jokers if necessary.
Thank you Lord.
“Senate can put it back in conference”
Not if the House holds firm. If House leaders say “we can’t sell a reversal on this critical issue to our members” they might get the Senate to waffle. It all comes down to who blinks first etc.
“An amendment from Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) blocks all federal funding for the law”
And and to bar EPA from issuing global warming rules.
Was that in there or just wishful thinking on your part?
Health Care Reform
Waivers + Judge Vinson’s Ruling + States Opposition + Election Results + House Vote = This Thing is Going Down.
And taking Obama with it.
So is the funding cut off or does the bill have to pass other hurdles?
House votes to block EPA’s global warming power
Let us all remember this wonderful day and realize that this GOP House is doing what they promised if elected. Sometimes we freepers, myself included, get critical when they don’t seem to be passing legislation fast enough. Today is a great day and the Republicans are figuring out that the people are in charge not Obama/Pelosi/Reid & Co.
Dang, as Casey Kasum would say, “the hits just keep coming.”
Go House!!! Great start!..Keep going!
The tide is turning.
