Less than a week after three people were killed in an attack at a Colorado Planned Parenthood, Senate Republicans voted overwhelmingly to end federal funding for the non-profit health organization.

It’s unlikely the vote will turn into law, however; President Barack Obama has vowed to veto the bill, which also contains language to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act.

From NBC:

The bill would also take away the federal dollars that Planned Parenthood receives. Democrats tried restoring those funds, but their effort was rejected on a near party-line vote of 54-46.

The House is expected to send the bill to President Barack Obama in the coming days. The White House has pledged that Obama will veto it.

Republicans lack the two-thirds House and Senate majorities needed to override a veto. That means the measure will achieve one thing: giving both parties political messaging they can use in next year’s elections.
