The U.S. House of Representatives has launched the latest spending battle with the passage of a spending plan that could lead to a government shutdown and would eliminate all funding for Obamacare, the controversial health care reform law passed in 2010.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), citing the law's unpopularity, said: "The American people don't want the government shut down and they don't want Obamacare. The House has listened to the American people. Now it's time for the United States Senate to listen to them as well."
"I will not negotiate over the full faith and credit of the United States," President Obama shot back at a speech in Liberty, Missouri.
Joining hosts Newt Gingrich and Stephanie Cutter in the Crossfire are Neera Tanden, the President of the Center for American Progress and a key architect of Obamacare, and FreedomWorks President and CEO Matt Kibbe, who supports defunding Obamacare.
