WASHINGTON - The White House says a House Republican bill that would delay a major provision of President Barack Obama's health care law is reckless and irresponsible.
Obama spokesman Jay Carney also says any Republican who votes for the bill is "voting for a shutdown." He notes that House Republicans have tried and failed to delay or eliminate the law's funding more than 40 times.
The House is expected to vote on the bill Saturday night.
The bill would delay for one year the requirement for nearly all uninsured people to buy health insurance or face penalties. It also would repeal a tax on medical devices.
Obama has said he will not delay his signature legislative achievement. The White House also has expressed opposition to repealing the medical devices tax.
