AP Sources: A Revised GOP Attack on ‘Obamacare’

House GOP leaders appear likely to give tea party lawmakers a chance to use a routine temporary government funding bill to try to muscle the Democratic-controlled Senate into derailing President Barack Obama’s health care law.

It’s a strategy fraught with political risk for House Republicans, who could find themselves bearing the blame for any partial government shutdown that results from an impasse.

The Senate seems poised to reject the GOP move. Senate Democrats would strip out of the legislation the provision to deny money to the health care law and send a straightforward stopgap spending bill right back into the laps of House conservatives frustrated by their inability to unravel what they call “Obamacare.”

GOP aides revealed the strategy Tuesday on condition of anonymity because it had not been announced.
