Via The Hill:
The White House said Wednesday that the GOP was engaged in “essentially an all-out civil war” and accused Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) of bending to “the will” of a small group of House conservatives after deciding to press forward with a government funding bill that would strip funding for ObamaCare.
“What has become more and more apparent is the leaders of the Republican party in Congress may want to avoid a shutdown… but there are members of that party, especially in the House, who seem to embrace the prospect,” press secretary Jay Carney said.
Earlier Wednesday, Boehner said the House would vote on a continuing resolution that would keep the government open — if the Affordable Care act was defunded.
Whereas the Democrats don’t dare deviate from what Obama tells them to do.
