A stopgap spending measure that would strip funds for the Affordable Care Act has sparked debate in the Senate, increasing the possibility of a government shutdown Oct. 1, according to these reports.

But disagreements could push a vote on the spending bill to the weekend as Reid works to remove the bill's provision that would defund the ACA.
