9-25-13 petri-health reform

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Republican Rep. Tom Petri of Wisconsin stopped short Tuesday of saying he'd insist on defunding Democratic President Barack Obama's signature health care law in order to avoid a government shutdown. Petri voted last week for a House bill that would avoid a partial government shutdown Oct. 1 while simultaneously canceling funding for the law. Petri says the goal isn't to shut down the government but to get a budget that reduces the deficit and strengthens the economy.
