John Boehner Says House Won't Accept Senate Temporary Government Funding Bill

By STEPHEN OLEMACHER, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON -- Speaker John Boehner says House Republicans will not accept the temporary funding bill being considered by the Senate.

Boehner told reporters Thursday, quote, "I don't see that happening." Boehner, however, refused to say how the House would change it.

The Senate is expected to pass a bill this weekend that would fund the government beyond Monday, the last day of the budget year. House Republicans previously passed a bill to fund the government that also stripped funding for President Barack Obama's health care law.

The Senate is expected to remove the health care provisions from the bill and make other changes. Boehner said House Republicans want to avoid a partial government shutdown. But to do that, the House and Senate must agree on a bill by Tuesday.
