WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama would veto House Republican legislation that would delay much of the president's health care overhaul for a year and cancel a tax on medical devices.
The White House statement comes as the GOP-run House prepares to debate a bill averting a government shutdown Tuesday morning, but delaying the health care law and repealing the tax as the price for doing so. The medical device tax helps finance the health care law.
The Democratic-run Senate has approved legislation preventing the shutdown and leaving the health care overhaul alone. That 2010 law has been Obama's proudest domestic achievement.
The White House says the House bill would advance a narrow ideological agenda and threaten the economy. It says the bill pushes the government toward a shutdown.
