Congress Delays Health Care Vote to Avoid Shutdown
Win some, lose some. Congress has passed a one-week extension to keep the federal government’s lights on through May 5. The stopgap spending measure is now heading to the Senate where it will likely be approved. The White House had hoped a vote on a revised GOP replacement for Obamacare could deliver a legislative win for President Donald Trump before his 100th day in office tomorrow, but the vote has reportedly been delayed as lawmakers focus on avoiding a government shutdown. Next week lawmakers are expected to propose a longer-term government spending plan that’ll last through September.
