Lawmakers are still at an impasse on how to keep the government funded.
Earlier Monday, the Senate voted to again remove House language related to ObamaCare from a continued spending resolution.
The House continuing resolution (CR) would fund the government through Dec. 15. It would delay the individual coverage mandate and the insurance exchanges — which are set to launch on Tuesday — and eliminate a 2.3 percent tax on medical devices.
But Democrats have said they want a “clean” CR to prevent a shutdown.
