GOP lawmakers are divided on a way forward to repeal Obamacare as a veto by President Barack Obama is a certainty. But some say using budget reconciliation may be one maneuver to strike a deal.
Republicans muscled legislation through the House on Thursday tightening federal restrictions on abortions. The vote came after internal divisions forced them into an embarrassing fumble of a similar bill. The House voted by a near party-line 242-179 to permanently bar federal funds for any abortion coverage. The measure would also block tax credits for many people and businesses buying abortion coverage under President Barack Obama’s health care law.
