House Now Has The Votes To End Government Shutdown, But John Boehner(Republican-Ohio) want bring it to the floor for a vote! In order to end the Government Shutdown he has to allow the house to vote on the issue;he wont.

WASHINGTON -- Less than two days after the government shut down, there are now more than 17 Republicans who say they're ready to pass a bill to fund the government with no strings attached, giving the House the votes it needs to pass a clean funding bill.

All 200 Democrats would need to stick together and team up with those Republicans to pass the bill, but House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would have to be willing to put it to a vote, which so far he has given no indication he will do. But if he does, the votes appear to be there. The Senate would pass the bill in no time, sending it to be signed by President Barack Obama and ending the shutdown.

Read the tally here to see who those House Republicans are, and why they say they're done with trying to force through provisions on Obamacare before agreeing to keep the government running.

Of course, we'll update the list when, or if, more come in.

This is a developing story and has been updated

reid has played the same game not bringing bills up for votes in the senate. bottom line is don't point fingers at others when your own people have played the same game before. the dems should get to the table with the reps and work out a deal. harry reid having a vote to not negotiate is a big part of the problem. it makes the other side not want to work out a middle of the line deal.

The ACA is law. It falls under " Mandatory Spending " The house of representatives have no control over " Mandatory Spending " Only discretionary spending. before you reply that I am a liar ! Check this fact for yourself. So no, it can not be part of a CR. Now the Budget that was passed by Senate Democrats, way back in April 2013, that Republicans refuse to allow into conference, That would be the place to negotiate spending on the ACA. Their will be no such action as " Defunding " or " Repealing " The ACA

It does matter! We want to end the government shut down now! He should man up and allow a vote to take place in the house. This isn't a slim down like your favorite network promotes! Back pay doesn't cover late fees..People are suffering.

the house has voted and passed 26 different bills to fix this, the senate hasn't voted on one yet. and you say the REPs are the problem. at least they are doing there jobs and voting. why isn't the senate?

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

PN, since the ACA is law why do the employers get an exemption for a year, the unions, congress and a host of others approximately (15). Since the Presidents job is to faithfully execute the Office of POTUS, there should be no (0) exemptions. I agree that the house was pushing it too far with option 1 & 2 which was repeal and replace and defund the ACA. However the 3rd option which was to delay the “individual mandate” and that all the Presidents minions (Congressional Exemptions) that voted, supported and rammed the bill down America’s throat, to enroll in it too and fund the government should have been accepted by Obama and Reid. That was true leadership and a compromise by John Boehner. And who are you or anyone else to say that we shouldn’t fight to change a bad law before it is permanently executed. Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security are all bankrupt and they passed bipartisan . When these programs belly up what will you do then?

BTW, the only way individuals get an exemption now is by paying a penalty if they don't sign up for ACA. And Obama and Reid are supposedly fighting for the poor. But I know it's really about control over the individual instead.

I had the pleasure of speaking with a soldier today at an eye doctors office. He was saying that this is going to allow the government more control over our lives, home life, and yes our health.

gacpl commented on Tuesday, Oct 08, 2013 at 20:00 PM

it's not about health care, it's all a about control.

Sheran commented on Tuesday, Oct 08, 2013 at 20:32 PM

I said health care, reason being, if I don't do as government tells me to do... they can pull the plug on me. I do "not" want to live life like a 3rd world country!
