The bill has an amendment attached which would defund Planned Parenthood for one year, in response to the release of videos which suggested Planned Parenthood has been engaging in unethical practices related to aborted babies’ parts.

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) stated: “Are we doing this for partisan reasons? I would say no, absolutely not. What we are doing is listening to our constituents, who’ve told us that they’ve had one bad experience after another with Obamacare.”

Republicans are using a budget process called “reconciliation,” which allows them to pass the bill based on a majority vote. Previous bills for an Obamacare repeal have been doomed by Democrats filibustering them.

President Obama is, of course, expected to veto the bill.

Democrats are planning to offer amendments to the bill related to Planned Parenthood and gun control, in the wake of two shootings- one that killed 3 people at a Planned Parenthood Clinic, and the other that recently occurred at a holiday party in California, which left 14 dead.

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said:  “Democrats are focused on doing something to stop the gun violence, and we will force amendment votes to that end today. We are going to vote on expanded background checks. We are going to vote to prevent criminals convicted of harassing women’s health clinics from owning weapons. Shouldn’t we do that at least?”

Although the amendments wouldn’t become law, Democrats hope to force a vote to target vulnerable Republicans on those issues in the 2016 elections.

A beefed-up version of the House-passed bill phasing out the law’s exchange subsidies for private plans and the expansion of Medicaid in select states will be voted on in the Senate.
