WASHINGTON — Internal fissures are developing among Senate Republicans over whether to risk a government shutdown in pursuit of an aggressive new strategy to kill the new health care law.
Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Deb Fischer of Nebraska were among a dozen GOP senators who penned a letter insisting that they would not support any legislation to keep the government operating this fall unless it also shuts down funding for the Affordable Care Act, which is frequently referred to as Obamacare.
