SHOTLIST:ABC POOL - AP CLIENTS ONLYWashington - September 20, 20131. SOUNDBITE (english) Rep. Nancy Pelosi / (D) House Minority Leader: "this place is a mess. Let's get our house in order. We are legislators. We have come here to do a job for the American people, and that job means we have to make the government run for the good of the people. We're not here to expand government. But we're not here to eliminate government. If the idea is to limit government, let's work together to do that. But what is brought to the floor today is without a doubt - without a doubt - a measure designed to shut down government.2. SOUNDBITE (english): Rep. Eric Cantor / (R) House Majority Leader: This continuing resolution will keep the government funded at its current level without increasing spending on the discretionary level while congress finishes working on a real budget. 3. SOUNDBITE (english) Rep. Steny Hoyer / (D) Maryland: This bill enshrines and confirms the descent into an economy-destroying, national-security undermining and ineffective rendering of the government that our country and our people need.4. SOUNDBITE (english) Rep. Tom McClintock / (R) Calif.: "I am getting frantic and heartbreaking calls from folks who just received staggering increases in their health premiums, who've been notified their health plans being dropped or having their work hours cut back as a result of obamacare. This stops that train wreck. And second it's for limited duration. CRs abandon our fundamental responsibility to superintend the nation's finances. They should only be used to stop-gap measures and this bill does that. This resolution keeps the government open while meeting these vital tests."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 government shutdown in a week and a half.The fight is coming on a stopgap funding measure required to keep the government fully running after the Oct. 1 start of the new budget year. Typically, such measures advance with sweeping bipartisan support, but tea party activists forced GOP leaders - against their better judgment - to add a provision to cripple the health care law that's the signature accomplishment of Obama's first term.The 230-189 vote sets the stage for a 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 that President Barack Obama will sign.
