Obama promises veto of 'Obamacare' defunding bill
WASHINGTON - The White House is promising a veto of a Republican effort to gut President Barack Obama's health care law.
The move is part of a temporary funding bill in the House to prevent a partial government shutdown next month.
In an official statement, the White House said the effort to "defund 'Obamacare'" would deny health care to millions of people.
The veto threat was expected, and isn't going to keep House Republicans from pressing their effort to de-fund the health care law.
Speaker John Boehner says the House tomorrow will pass a bill to keep the government running while cutting funding for the health care overhaul.
