House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi is deeply unhappy with Republicans' plan to vote later this week on a proposal to defund Obamacare while keeping the government running past Oct. 1.
"Today, Speaker Boehner surrendered the gavel to the Tea Party’s desperate attempts to put insurance companies back in charge of the Americans’ health care. After failing to offer a single jobs bill in this Congress, House Republicans will force their 42nd attempt to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act; now, they’re prepared to shut down the government to do so," the Califoironia Democrat said.
Pelosi saw harsh consequences.
"Instead of moving forward on a bipartisan budget solution, Republicans are doubling down on the devastating sequester cuts that will cost one million jobs by the end of 2014 and continue to gut critical investments in education, infrastructure, and innovation – key pillars of a thriving economy and a strong middle class," she maintained.
Pelosi and House Speaker John Boehner plan separate press conferences Thursday to address the concerns.
