House GOP Work on Separate Funding Bill

WASHINGTON (AP) - House Republican leaders are planning to push their own bill to reopen the government and avoid a financial default.
   
Officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders have outlined a bill that would keep the government running through Jan. 15 and raise the debt limit to Feb. 7. The measure is separate from a deal emerging in the Senate.
   
The bill also would suspend a tax on medical devices for two years, require income verification for subsidies to receive health insurance and eliminate health care subsidies for the president, vice president, his Cabinet and members of Congress.
   
The House plans to vote on Tuesday.
   
Officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly discuss the plans.
