US House passes Bill to kill Obamacare, avert government shutdown

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States House of Representatives on Friday passed legislation to fund federal agencies from Oct 1 to Dec 15, while also derailing the health-care law known as "Obamacare".

In a partisan vote of 230-189, the Republican-controlled House sent the measure to the Senate, where Democrats hold a majority, and will try to delete the Obamacare provision and send the spending Bill back to the House for passage by Sept 30 in order to prevent government shutdowns the following day.
