Showing some spine?
Speaker John Boehner said Thursday the GOP-controlled House will not accept a temporary spending bill from the Democratic Senate if it is shorn clean of a tea party plan to "defund Obamacare."

don't see that happening," Boehner told reporters.

He defended that measure's relatively modest spending cuts even as some rank-and-file conservatives pressed for more.
