BREAKING NEWS: U.S. House of Representatives passes a CR that defunds Obamacare

The word on the street is the House just voted to defund Obamacare. This from Fox News’ breaking banner:

HOUSE VOTES TO DEFUND OBAMACARE, PROVIDE MONEY TO KEEP GOV’T RUNNING THROUGH DEC. 15

A tipster tells me 229 voted to defund it and that included all but one Republican (I’d like to know who that is…), 5 Republicans didn’t vote at all and 1 Democrat came over to vote with Republicans to defund it.

Thank you Speaker Boehner and House Republicans for listening to the American people.

Now don’t screw this up!



UPDATE: Washington Examiner says final vote 230-189.

House votes 230-189 to defund Obamacare, keep government running

UPDATE 2: This from Business insider:

The one Republican who voted against the bill was Rep. Scott Rigell (Va.), who said Thursday that he would do so because of a desire to return to regular budget order.
