Senate Rejects Latest House Bill, Shutdown Looms

-
The Senate voted Monday to reject a Republican-backed bid to delay ObamaCare as part of a crucial government spending package, sending the bill back to the House with just hours left on the clock until the government begins to shut down. 

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, as expected, moved to kill two House amendments that would have delayed the health care law and repealed its unpopular medical device tax. The Senate voted 54-46, along party lines, to do so. 

House leaders will now have to decide whether to make a counter-offer or accept the Senate bill. Without a resolution, the government is expected to start shutting down after midnight.
