This shows that Obama and the democrats are playing politics and care nothing about the people of this country
Obama vows to veto short-term bill - Washington Times
The White House has vowed to veto the short-term spending bill House Republicans will vote on this afternoon, taking away the safety net that could have given both sides another week to avert a government shutdown.
Without a short-term extension, the options would be narrowed to either a broad successful deal or a shutdown as of midnight Friday.
“If presented with this bill, the president will veto it,” the White House said in an official statement of policy.
