Obama Says Republicans "Trying to Mess With Me" After House Passes Spending Bill That Would Defund Obamacare

LIBERTY, MO.President Obama slammed House Republicans for "trying to mess with me" by passing a bill today to fund the government but also defund Obamacare.

At a Ford plant that stamps out components for trucks and vans, Mr. Obama said the budget battles in Washington are "always a contentious process."

But in a campaign-style speech to autoworkers, the president revved his engine against those he called "a faction on the far right." He says they convinced their leadership to pursue policies that could result in a government shutdown or default, if funding for his signature health care program is not cut off.
