White House vows to continue funding Obamacare, averting showdown with Democrats

The White House has assured Democrats it will continue to fund a key portion of Obamacare, clearing the way for negotiations on a series of spending bills to avoid a government shutdown, according to two sources familiar with the decision. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., had demanded that Congress pay for the Affordable Care Act’s subsidies — which lower health care costs for 7 million people — as part of the emerging spending bill.
