Obama Threatens to Veto Any Effort to Defund ObamaCare

Fight goes on


President Obama on Thursday promised he would veto the government funding bill from House Republicans that would defund his healthcare law, raising the stakes in the fight over a government shutdown.

The White House noted the House bill would end all funding for ObamaCare and accused Republicans of pursuing a "narrow ideological agenda."

"The Administration strongly opposes House passage of H.J. Res. 59, making continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2014 and for other purposes, because it advances a narrow ideological agenda that threatens our economy and the interests of the middle class.
