( - The Senate voted 54 to 46 this afternoon to table, in one vote, the continuing resolution passed by the House early Sunday morning to fund the government but delay Obamacare and a bill to repeal the Obamacare tax on medical devices.

"We are not going to negotiate on this," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said after the vote.

"We are not going to mess around with Obamacare, no matter what they do," said Reid.

The current continuing resolution authorizes the government to spend money through midnight tonight.

The Senate is divided with 54 Democrats and 46 Republicans.

"Understand we are dealing with anarchists," said Reid. "They hate government."
