Health Care Debate Continues As Government Shutdown Looms

The marathon debate over the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare, continued Wednesday as a government shutdown looms.

Some Republicans are trying to delay action on a spending bill because some Senate Democrats are planning to remove a provision in the bill that would dismantle President Barack Obama's health care law.

The measure is needed to prevent a government shutdown after midnight Monday.

The next phase under the Affordable Care Act is scheduled to roll out Tuesday, when open enrollment begins.

Stay tuned to and WITN News for the latest action on Capitol Hill.
