Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted to gut President Barack Obama's health care plan as part of a temporary funding bill to prevent a partial government shutdown at the end of the month, at the Capitol in Washington,

The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday passed legislation to fund federal agencies from Oct. 1 to Dec. 15 while also derailing the healthcare law known as "Obamacare."

In a partisan vote of 230-189, the Republican-controlled House sent the measure to the Senate where Democrats hold a majority and will try to delete the Obamacare provision and send the spending bill back to the House for passage by Sept. 30 in order to prevent government shutdowns the following day.
