Republicans do indeed have spines.

Well would you look at that!  The GOP has voted to defund Obamcare at the same time providing a stopgap funding bill.  So not only do they have spines, they've got a bit of brains to go with them.

House Republicans passed their stopgap funding bill Friday to keep government open while terminating the new health care law, setting up a final showdown next week with Senate Democrats and President Obama who have firmly rejected the GOP approach.

The 230-189 vote, which split almost exactly along party lines, is the precursor to the big action next week, when the Democratic majority in the Senate is expected to strip out the health care provisions and send the bill back to the House — where Republicans will have to decide whether they can accept it at that point.
Well played - for now. It's what happens next that matters.  But hey, at least the GOP did something proactive.
