War in the House

Conservative Congressmen are bucking Boehner's government funding bill because he and his team have refused to hear an amendment to defund Obamacare. The defection is shaking up the House, but I don't think this move by the Establishment will be very popular:
Instead, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on Sunday that he would be open to ramming through bills without the support of a majority of his own Republican caucus. Not just on small bills. On issues like immigration and gun control, McCarthy said, he’d be open to taking rogue Republicans across the aisle to work with Democrats.
