Senate Rejects House Obamacare Delay in Spending Bill

The Democratic-led Senate has rejected conditions that House Republicans attached to a temporary spending bill.

On the brink of a government shutdown, the Senate voted 54-46 on Monday to strip a one-year delay in President Barack Obama's health care law from the bill that would keep the government operating. The Senate also stripped a provision that would have eliminated the tax on medical devices.

House Republicans had added the provisions early Sunday morning in their campaign to undo Obama's signature domestic program.
