House GOP Caucus Split on Alternative Anti-ACA Strategy
On Tuesday, House Republican leaders released a short-term spending resolution for 2014, which would force the Senate to vote on a GOP plan to defund the Affordable Care Act while limiting the risk of a government shutdown. However, the proposal -- devised by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) -- was met with skepticism by conservative lawmakers seeking a more certain path toward defunding the ACA.
