House GOP Leaders Forced to Delay Budget Vote

House GOP leaders decided "to delay until next week a contentious vote on keeping government funding going," the Washington Post reports.

"Rank-and-file Republicans had not fully come aboard their leadership's complicated plan to keep federal agencies operating at current austerity levels while forcing a Senate vote on whether to defund President Obama's health-care initiative. Under that plan the Senate-- with it's 55-seat Democratic majority-- would surely dismiss the Obamacare rider and keep the government running, a scenario that outside conservative groups have lambasted in the last 24 hours."
