White House warns U.S. House it's moving toward gov't shutdown

WASHINGTON, Sept 28 (Reuters) - White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Saturday that any lawmaker who votes for a new House Republican government funding bill is “voting for a shutdown.”

In a brief statement, Carney said the Republican-led House of Representatives needed to pass instead the measure approved by the Democratic-led Senate on Friday that, unlike the House alternative, would fund the healthcare law known as Obamacare.
