House Votes to Defund Health Care Law
WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKRC) -- The House of Representatives passes a budget bill that prevents a government shutdown but it cuts funding for President Obama's healthcare law.

The measure funds government services for three months but takes away money to pay for the new health care law. After the vote, Republicans celebrated at a rally but it may be short- lived.
Senate Democrats plan to remove the changes to the health care reform law when they take up the budget bill.

He says failure to raise the debt ceiling would send the economy into a tailspin, and he accuses House Republicans of abandoning the middle class.
