Lowry: House Will Pass Clean Continuing Resolution

The effort to use the debt ceiling as leverage to defund Obamacare will come to naught, National Review editor Rich Lowry said tonight.

During an appearance on Special Report’s All-Star Panel, Lowry predicted that the House would eventually pass a “clean” continuing resolution despite drama in the Senate related to the effort to defund Obamacare.

“It goes to the Senate, there’ll be some theatrics, Harry Reid will strip out the defunding from the [continuing resolution], it’ll go back to the House and probably end up passed in a clean version,” Lowry said.
