House Approves Spending Bill Which Defunds Healthcare Law

A spending bill which defunds the healthcare reform law is on its way to the Senate after passage by the House.  The vote was 230-189. 

The Republican bill aims to avert a looming shutdown by extending government funding for three months, starting October 1st.  However, defunding the healthcare law is a non-starter in the Democratic-led Senate and President Obama vows to veto any defunding legislation.
