US Senate votes to NOT defund Planned Parenthood, repeal Obamacare

U.S. Senate voted 55 to 45 to reject the repealing of Obamacare
Yesterday, the U.S. Senate voted 55 to 45 to reject the repealing of Obamacare and defunding of Planned Parenthood.  The vote was on an amendment to the American Healthcare Act (AHCA) that would swap the AHCA with a simple repeal of Obamacare. The AHCA outlines some provisions "replacing" Obamacare.

The vote doesn't mean that the Senate still won't end up repealing (and possibly replacing) Obamacare and defunding Planned Parenthood. The process of Senate debate over the AHCA – and introductions of various amendments to it – will carry on throughout the week.
