BoehnerJohn BoehnerSudan sanctions spur intense lobbying OPINION | GOP's 7-year ObamaCare blood oath ends in failure A simple fix to encourage bipartisanship in the House MORE's staff said that while no deal was reached with the White House Tuesday morning, House Republicans have not yet scheduled a vote on a one-week spending bill that would cut $12 billion. However, staff said Republicans are "rallying behind" their one-week bill over a Democratic plan to cut $33 billion for the rest of the fiscal year, and a vote on this bill seems increasingly likely now that there are now less than four days before authorization for current government spending expires.

"The Speaker said the new CR has not yet been scheduled for floor action, and that Republicans' strong preference is that we instead pass a bipartisan agreement this week that resolves last year's budget mess by making real spending cuts and keeps the entire government running through September," Boehner's staff said.
