GOP Goes All-In On ‘De-Fund ObamaCare,’ As Shutdown Looms

House Speaker John Boehner, in an abrupt turnaround, plans to let Tea Party lawmakers have a vote on de-funding ObamaCare as part of a politically risky strategy which Democrats warn could result in a government shutdown.
GOP leaders unveiled their plan to members on Wednesday morning, teeing up a vote for Friday -- the proposed bill would tie the vote to de-fund the health care law to a vote on a stopgap spending bill. Current funding for the government is set to expire at the end of the month, and lawmakers must approve the stopgap bill in order to keep Washington open; conservatives see this as leverage to force a suspension of ObamaCare.

Nothing will be "shut down" if they fund everything BUT Obamacare...and last time the gov't "shut" down, it is not like everything came to a screeching halt...military got paid, the debt got paid, social security got paid...they shout down monuments, but the main things kept going.
