The House on Friday voted largely along party lines to prohibit funding for the healthcare reform law and eliminate funding for family planning.

In a quick succession of two-minute votes, the House adopted three amendments to their stop-gap budget bill that eliminate healthcare reform funding through the end of the fiscal year. The House also approved, 240-185, an amendment barring federal Title X family planning grants that was aimed squarely at Planned Parenthood.

Actually, I think we are in an even stronger position than you think. Because the House has to approve the budget. Meaning that if the House does not vote to fund Obamacare then by default it is not funded. Obama and the Senate can threaten to veto the budget and thus cause a government shutdown untill someone blinks. However, until the house votes to fund it, Obamacare will not be funded.
