Government Shutdown Wouldn’t Stop Obamacare

WASHINGTON (AP) — A partial government shutdown next week would leave the major parts of President Barack Obama’s health care law in place and humming right along. That’s according to former Democratic and Republican budget officials, as well as the Obama administration itself.

Health care markets where the uninsured could sign up for coverage would open as scheduled on Tuesday.
Taking away the program’s budget, which currently is the preferred Republican strategy, would indeed cripple Obamacare. But there doesn’t seem to be any chance that the president would go along and facilitate the ruin of his hard-fought namesake legislation.

And it could be a particularly chaotic ending, because a host of mandates, taxes and regulations would remain on the books.
