House passes bill to avert shutdown, but it won't pass the Senate.

House passes bill to kill Obamacare, avert government shutdown: The legislation that passed in the House to fund federal agencies until mid-December and defund Obamacare is likely to fail in the senate. I’m sure no one is shocked that the Republican-led House passed a bill that would slash spending on food stamps by $40B and defund Obamacare, which the more Democratic senate is expected to reject. The public continues to wait for congress to make an agreement to avert a government shutdown while Democrats and Republicans play ping pong with legislation that will affect all 300 Million Americans.
