80 HOUSE MEMBERS: SHUTDOWN BETTER THAN ‘OBAMACARE’

WASHINGTON (AP) — More than a third of House Republicans urged their leader Thursday to trigger a government shutdown rather than fund the implementation of the health care overhaul they call “Obamacare.”

A letter from 80 Republicans asked Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to resist any spending bills that would accommodate the new health care law, which is nearing a critical stage of signing up millions of Americans for health coverage.

The letter is mixed news for Boehner and other GOP leaders who view a government shutdown as politically unwise.
