According to a Saturday piece by Noam N. Levey at the LA Times, Republican congressional leaders are unwilling to threaten another government shut down to try to overturn Obamacare.

(Bloomberg) -- A Baton Rouge hospital is closing the only emergency room on the city’s impoverished north side, a real-world ripple effect of the ideological clash over President Barack Obama’s health-care law.
