Vote to Override Obama’s Veto
The vote to override President Obama’s veto of the reconciliation bill that had been postponed last week because of the snow storm is planned for later today.
Remember this reconciliation bill would defund Planned Parenthood and repeal major portions of Obamacare. Earlier this year, the House voted to pass the bill by a 240 – 181 with Republicans voting 239-3 for the bill and Democrat voting 1-178 against it.
It takes a two-thirds majority to override a Presidential veto. The chances are slim that that majority will be reached, however the attempt must be made. Just the fact that the House and Senate sent a bill to the President that would defund Planned Parenthood is history — it had never been done before!! If a similar defunding bill is passed in 2017 and reaches the desk of a pro-life president just imagine the babies that will be saved from abortion!
