Senate leader Harry Reid vowed Monday not to allow "extremist Republicans" to derail the Affordable Care Act, setting the stage for an ideological clash that could lead to a government shutdown. "We will not bow to tea party anarchists," Reid said. "Obamacare is the law of the land, and it will remain the law of the land as long as ... I am the Senate majority leader."
