Senate Set To Table House Spending Bill

Government shutdown kicks in at midnight without a deal being reached


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will double down on Monday afternoon and again dismiss the House's attempts to chip away at Obamacare as part of a government funding bill.

The Senate will come in session at 2 p.m. and shortly thereafter vote to table the funding bill passed by the House over the weekend that repeals a 2.3 percent levy on medical devices and delay Obamacare by a year. The Senate will send back a bill funding the government through Nov. 15, leaving the House a handful of hours to respond ahead of a midnight shutdown deadline.
