Senate will vote to defund Planned Parenthood, can’t agree on Obamacare replacement
Republican efforts in the U.S. Senate to repeal and replace Obamacare tanked last night as two GOP Senators came out against the bill, and Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-KY, admitted that "regretfully," the bill "will not be successful."
The 2015 bill that Republicans will now attempt to pass repeals but doesn't replace Obamacare. It would defund Planned Parenthood for one year. Obamacare would end in 2020, giving Congress some time to hopefully agree on an alternative.
