Will the congressional Republican leaders—House Speaker John Boehner and current Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell—work with out-going Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to fully fund Obamacare in a lame-duck session of Congress before the newly elected Republican majorities in both houses can be seated?
The current continuing resolution, passed by Congress on Sept. 18, funds the federal government through December 11. Republican leaders knew when they passed this bill they were giving themselves–and their Democrat incumbent colleagues–the power in lame-duck session to preempt the Congress that was elected yesterday by passing a long-term funding bill for 2015 before that Congress could be sworn-in.
The CR passed in September fully funds implementation of Obamcare—including the “preventive services” regulation that requires health-care plans to provide co-pay free coverage for contraceptives, sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs.
