Here we go again, folks... The possibility of another federal government shutdown, which would be the second in two years is growing. US House conservatives oppose any funding for Planned Parenthood.
A move that blocks funding for Planned Parenthood would almost certainly lack the votes to pass the Senate, and would be vetoed by President Obama.
But House Republicans lack GOP votes to approve a funding measure that continues Planned Parenthood, and don't want to negotiate with Democrats.
House Democrats are demanding negotiations with GOP leaders on a budget. They also want spending limits known as the sequester to be lifted, and it’s not clear they’d back a short-term spending measure written by the GOP with no concessions.
