Republicans will attach a one-year Obamacare delay and the repeal of the medical device tax to a short-term government funding bill passed by the Senate, Republican sources confirmed Saturday.

"Even a [Obamacare] delay would be a win at the end of the day, and it would be a compelling argument to have over in the Senate," Rep. Kristi Noem, R-S.D., said as she entered a meeting of the Republican conference.

Further, Republicans will propose a defense appropriations bill to continue finding military operations as a separate bill.

"I don't think we should skip pay day for our troops. We're still at war, we have people over there in Afghanistan fighting every day. They have families here at home," said Rep. Buck McKeon, R-Calif., the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.

The measures will receive a vote on Saturday.
