John Boehner, Tom Graves

Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, right, is cheered as Republican members of the House of Representatives rally after passing a bill that would prevent a government shutdown while crippling the health care law that was the signature accomplishment of President Barack Obama’s first term, at the Capitol in Washington, Friday, Sept. 20, 2013. The top Senate Democrat, Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., has pronounced the bill dead on arrival and calls the House exercise a “waste of time.” Applauding at left in front is Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., who led conservatives in persuading Boehner to accept a deal to link defunding the Affordable Care Act with the continuing resolution for government funding. (AP Photo/J.
