The House vote on a short-term spending measure to keep the government funded until Dec. 15 has been delayed because of opposition from some conservative Republicans, according to these reports. A plan from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., aims to remove funds for the Affordable Care Act through a separate resolution linked to the short-term spending bill. However, some conservatives say the plan is weak and they would prefer a spending bill that directly cancels funds for the health care law.
