GOP Eyes Obamacare as Target in Debt Ceiling Talks

Reuters says "growing numbers of Republicans in Congress" are setting their sights on a new target in looming fiscal showdowns this autumn over government funding and the debt limit: "Obamacare."

"Several Republicans are pledging to oppose a stopgap government spending bill that will be needed by October 1 unless it withholds funds from the implementation of President Obama's signature healthcare law -- especially its core requirement that uninsured Americans obtain health coverage."

"Blockage of the funding measure could lead to a shutdown of government agencies, roiling financial markets."
