SHOTLIST:ABC POOL - AP Clients OnlyWashington, DC - 20 Sept. 20131. SOUNDBITE: (English) Rep. John Boehner, Speaker of the House"We had a victory today for the American people. And frankly, we also had a victory today for common sense."(Dissolve)"This is hurting our constituents, it's hurting the American people. At a time when the economy is barely eeking along, wages aren't increasing, new jobs aren't available, and what are we doing? We're putting more costs and more inconvenience on the American people. It's time for us to say 'no.' It's time to stop this before it causes any more damage to American families and American businesses."(Cutaway)"So, our message to the United States Senate is very simple. The American people don't want the government shut down and they don't want Obamacare."STORYLINE:The GOP-controlled House voted Friday to cripple President Barack Obama's health care law as part of a risky ploy that threatens a partial shutdown of the government in a week and a half.Claiming victory at a news conference immediately afterwards, House Speaker John Boehner hailed the House vote, calling the health care law 'a trainwreck,' that is 'hurting the American people.' House Republicans believe the so-called Obamacare law is forcing cutbacks in workers' hours, raising health insurance premiums and being implemented unfairly. They've now voted more than 40 times to disable all or part of the health care law. "This is hurting our constituents, it's hurting the American people. At a time when the economy is barely eeking along, wages aren't increasing, new jobs aren't available, and what are we doing? We're putting more costs and more inconvenience on the American people. It's time for us to say 'no.' It's time to stop this before it causes any more damage to American families and American businesses," said Boehner.The 230-189 vote sets the stage for another confrontation with the Democratic-led Senate, which promises to strip the health care provision from the bill next week and challenge the House to pass it as a simple, straightforward funding bill."So, our message to the United States Senate is very simple. The American people don't want the government shut down and they don't want Obamacare," said.If Congress doesn't reach an agreement, the government will partially shut down on Oct. 1, the start of the new budget year.
