(AP) The Republican-run House has rejected an effort by Democrats to force a quick end to the partial government shutdown.


By a 227-197 vote Wednesday, the House rejected a move by Democrats aimed at forcing the House to vote on immediately reopening the government without clamping any restrictions on President Barack Obama's health care law.


The Democratic-run Senate has already approved such legislation.


House Republican leaders have refused to allow their chamber to vote on that plan. They have approved legislation that would reopen government, but only with a one-year delay in the health care law's requirement that individuals purchase health insurance.


The partial shutdown began Tuesday.
