Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives stood firm and passed a budget bill Friday evening which prevents a government shut-down but also wipes out Obamacare. The vote was 230-189. Rep. Scott Rigell of Virginia was the only GOP defector. Two Democrats, Jim Matheson of Utah and Mike McIntyre of North Carolina sided with the Republicans.
It now goes to the Senate where Republicans Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah are leading the effort to defund Obamacare there.
