With Congress coming back after Labor Day, House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio is on a short leash, with members of his caucus yanking in different directions. More than a third of them -- 80 members -- sent House GOP leaders a letter urging Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor to "de-fund" the president's health care law, which could trigger a government shutdown this fall. That's something GOP leaders in the House and Senate want to avoid, fearing a political backlash.
