Lawmakers need to reach an agreement by midnight on legislation to fund the government, otherwise it would shutdown.

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.
