The House of Representatives set up a showdown with the Senate over funding the government, as Republicans pushed through their iniatives in a series of post-midnight votes Sunday.
First, the House passed a repeal of a 2.3 percent tax on medical devices, 248 to 174.
Then, it approved a one-year delay in the Affordable Care Act, 231 to 192.
Finally, the House okayed a plan to continue military pay in the event of a shutdown.
The Senate, though, is expected to reject the health care plans. Senators are due to return at 2 p.m. Monday. If Congress does not agree by midnight Monday on a spending plan to keep the government running when fiscal 2014 begins Tuesday, parts of the government will begin shutting down.
