Here is the reason really dont want to do this. They can pass this bill in the house without funding Obama care. However when it gets to the senate they can add it back on, pass it and it goes back to the house. At this point the house will have to agree to senates version or govt shuts down. Dems can than say it was the repubs in the house who shut down the govt. sadly with the rules on the spending bills and dens control of senate the media will blame the repubs.
So this is why they are scared. They know the dem controlled media and the sheep me will buy the narrative it was the repubs fault when they take the last vote and can't pass a spending bill. The first version they did pass will be an afterthought by this time.
IMO, the GOP should first threaten to shut down the government and actually follow through for one week.
After the week is up, go to the negotiation table and say we will only sign a CR if a waiver is put in place for all everyone, just like unions, corporations and government workers.
Fair is fair.
Instead we have a bunch of pussies that won't even walk up to the negotiation table.
