House GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy said the House will send a third government funding the bill with “a few other options” if the Democratically-controlled Senate rejects the bill passed in the House last night as expected.
“We will pass a bill…that will keep the government open, that will reflect the House, that I believe the Senate can accept, that will have fundamental changes to Obamacare that can protect the economy for America,” McCarthy said on Fox News Sunday.
The remarks confirm National Review Online’s reporting yesterday that House leadership is considering an 11th-hour play like passing a “clean” continuing resolution (CR) with language added to end a subsidy for congressional staffers to purchase health insurance with.
