WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS NEWS) - The House is preparing to put to a vote Tuesday evening their plan to reopen the government and extend the U.S. borrowing authority while making some modifications to the health care law.

The measure will set down a marker that is different from a bipartisan deal negotiated by Senate leaders on Monday and is unlikely to receive any Democratic votes.

The plan comes just one day before the U.S. borrowing authority is set to On Oct. 17, U.S. will have exhausted its borrowing authority and the government is in its fifteenth day of a partial  government shutdown.

House Republican leaders began discussing their intent to counter the Senate plan Tuesday morning, and reshaped their proposal over the course of the day as they got feedback from rank-and-file Republicans.

The plan they are expected to vote on Tuesday evening will lift the debt ceiling through Feb. 7 and fund the government through Dec. 15. The Senate plan proposed to reopen the government through Jan. 15, but two provisions of the Affordable Care Act - the individual mandate and a requirement that employers provide contraception coverage - take effect on Jan. 1. By forcing budget negotiations to conclude before the end of the year, they can still try to fight those two provisions.

The plan would not repeal a medical device tax for two years, which appeared to be a part of negotiations Monday morning, nor will it adopt a Senate provision that would delay for one year a special tax of $63 on all health insurance plans to help spread out the costs of giving insurance to the most ill Americans for the first time. But the House plan would bar elected officials and staff in Washington, D.C. from receiving subsidies to buy health care on the exchanges, and it would bar the Treasury Department from using so-called "extraordinary measures" to extend to allow the government to manage its cash in such a way that it can keep paying bills for a period of time once the U.S. legally hits its cap on spending.
