House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Sunday there are not enough votes to in the House to pass a clean stopgap spending bill to fund the government, prompting Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to challenge him to bring such a vote to the House floor.

"There are not the votes in the House to pass a clean CR," Boehner said on ABC's "This Week With George Stephanopoulos."

Schumer responded by calling for Boehner to test his belief.
