House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has less than three days to rally his divided caucus around a stopgap funding bill that would avert a government shutdown on Sept. 30. The United States Senate passed such a measure Friday, but many House Republicans are intent on dismantling President Barack Obama's health care law. (AP Photo/J Scott Applewhite)	 | AP

House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, and House GOP leaders, speak to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, after a closed-door strategy session. Pressure is building on fractious Republicans over legislation to prevent a partial government shutdown, as the Democratic-led Senate is expected to strip a tea party-backed plan to defund the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as “Obamacare,” from their bill. Speaker Boehner originally preferred a plan to deliver to President Obama a stopgap funding bill without the provision to eliminate the health care law. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
