Rep. Young on latest federal funding bill

Play

WFHB Correspondent David Murphy speaks with Todd Young, Indiana District 9 representative in the House, about the latest version of a federal funding bill now being sent back to the senate for approval. The stalemate in Congress over continuing to fund federal government operations has not been resolved, as the midnight deadline approaches. The House majority, led by Republicans and in particular Tea Party activists, has sent several bills to the Senate, all of which tie continued funding of government operations until mid-December to a one-year delay in implementing the compulsory individual health insurance provision in the Affordable Care Act, plus several other related and unrelated tax and regulatory provisions. Meanwhile, the Senate majority, led by Democrats, has passed continuing funding bills with the House addendums, including the Obamacare delay, removed. About an hour ago, the House passed, and sent over to the Senate, another bill with the Obamacare one-year delay included.

If the Senate and the House do not come up with a compromise that President Obama accepts, with few exceptions, federal government operations will cease as of midnight tonight. Government employees will not come to work and will not be paid, and government services to the public will cease.
