“After weeks of working with and listening to members on how to approach the government funding deadline, it’s clear that House Republicans are united around two goals: keeping the government open and protecting our constituents from the harmful effects of Obamacare,” Graves said. “Today, my 42 cosponsors and I are putting forward a plan that achieves both goals.”

The measure thumbs GOP leaders in the eye as they seek to build support for a CR that jams Democrats with lower spending levels but stops short of threatening a shutdown over Obamacare.
