From NRLC: U.S. Senate girds for close vote on filibuster-proof “reconciliation” bill to strip $400 million from Planned Parenthood.
WASHINGTON: Within the next few weeks, the U.S. Senate is expected to vote on a special fast-track bill, H.R. 3762, that would block about 89% of the federal funds that go to Planned Parenthood — about $400 million in the next year.
The Republican Senate leadership plans to move the bill through a rare, special process called “reconciliation,” which prohibits it from being blocked by a filibuster. But the bill still requires majority support in order to pass.
The bill already passed the U.S. House of Representatives, on October 23, 2015, by a vote of 240-189. The strong House vote reflected a wave of visible support from grassroots pro-life activists nationwide.
In the U.S. Senate, however, a razor-close vote is expected, and it will require an even greater nationwide outpouring of support from grassroots pro-life citizens in order to pass this legislation.
THIS MEANS YOUR CALL TO YOUR SENATOR IS CRUCIAL!
One problem is that a few “conservative” voices are urging that the bill be defeated unless it is amended to entirely repeal Obamacare, which apparently is impossible under longstanding U.S. Senate rules that limit the types of provisions that can be included in a “reconciliation bill.”
However, the House-passed bill does repeal some components of Obamacare.
Moreover, Senate rules will allow senators to offer amendments on the Senate floor that would repeal some other elements of Obamacare (if the amendments pass).
The essential thing is that, at that end of that amendment process, the bill must be passed for the sake of the Planned Parenthood provision — and that means that
the vote of every single pro-life senator is necessary!
