Congress is at war again, but this time the fighting isn't exactly between Republicans and Democrats. With just a few days to go until August recess, the GOP is deeply divided over whether to threaten to shut down the government unless the Affordable Care Act is repealed.

Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid saying he would not vote for a continuing resolution that funds Obamacare, and 11 others have signed on to that letter.

Now they say they'll bring yet another vote to the floor for repeal, making it the 40th such vote on the measure.
