Defiant House delays Obamacare; government shutdown looms

Washington (CNN) - Less than 48 hours before a shutdown of the federal government would begin, House Republican leaders remained defiant in their effort to chip away at Obamacare - with one member of the House GOP leadership insisting the House will continue its effort to undermine the health care law and another faulting the Democratically controlled Senate for not working on Sunday.

In a move that makes a shutdown appear very likely, House Republicans approved a spending plan early Sunday morning that would delay Obamacare for a year and repeal its tax on medical devices.
