GOP Takes Tough Stand On Health Care Law

House GOP leaders are looking to reverse course and agree to tea party demands to try to use a vote this week on a must-pass temporary government funding bill to block implementation of President Barack Obama’s health care law.

A GOP aide says the latest strategy is to be offered to rank-and-file Republicans at a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill later today. It aim would be to link the stopgap spending bill to an attempt to strip money from President Barack Obama’s health care program. The aide required anonymity to discuss the strategy because it has not been announced.

The Senate would likely strip out the health care provision and send it to the House, raising the possibility of a confrontation that could lead to a partial government shutdown after the Sept. 30 end of the budget year.
