Ted Cruz http://www.kunc.org en House Ties Government Funding To One-Year Obamacare Delay http://www.kunc.org/post/house-ties-government-funding-one-year-obamacare-delay <strong>Updated at 12:24 a.m. ET Sunday </strong><p>The House voted early Sunday to tie government funding to a one-year delay in implementing Obamacare, sending the dispute back to the Senate, where it is certain to get a frosty reception. The House measure also repeals the Affordable Care Act's tax on medical devices.<p>But with a government shutdown looming at midnight Monday, the White House said President Obama would veto the House bill, on the unlikely chance it made it through the Senate.

With the threat of a shutdown looming three days away, the question is now, what will the House do?<p>On Friday before the Senate vote, even the Senate chaplain hinted that the squabbling and mounting anger on Capitol Hill had gotten out of hand.
