All Senate Dems, including Manchin, vote to protect Obamacare funding
All Democrats in the U.S. Senate just voted to preserve funding for the national health care law, with the measure being rejected by a 47 to 53 vote straight party line vote. The Obamacare defunding vote could be particularly harmful to Sen. Joe Manchin who won a special election in West Virginia last year by convincing voters that he was a conservative Democrat who would buck party leadership.

Senate Defeats Effort to Cut Off Funds for Health Care Law
The vote Thursday was 53-47, strictly along party lines. Republicans had pressed for a vote on the resolution as part of the negotiated deal to cut spending struck by Obama and congressional leaders last week.

H.Con.Res. 36: Directing the Clerk of the House of Representatives to make a correction in the enrollment of H.R. 1473
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That, in the enrollment of the bill (H.R. 1473) making appropriations for the Department of Defense and the other departments and agencies of the Government for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2011, and for other purposes, the Clerk of the House of Representatives shall make the following correction: At the end of title VIII of division B, insert the following new section:

On the Concurrent Resolution
Passed by 18 votes: 42-58 (3/5 required)
On Eve of Tax Day, Planned Parenthood Funding Continues
Today, on the eve of Tax Day, the Senate voted to continue taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, the nationοΎ’s largest abortion provider. While the House passed the Black/Roby Correction with bipartisan support, the Senate voted against it with no "pro-life" Senate Democrats voting to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

Senate rejects measure to defund Planned Parenthood
As expected, the Senate has voted down a measure to defund Planned Parenthood, with five Republicans voting with Democrats to keep the funding in place. The vote was 42-58. Republicans voting against the stand-alone resolution to defund Planned Parenthood were: Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois, Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Sens. Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine.

Now we know why defunding Planned Parenthood couldn't make it into budget deal
The Senate just voted down the bill to strip funding of Planned Parenthood by a 58 to 42 margin, with five Republicans joining all the Democrats to oppose defunding. The lack of support for defunding Planned Parenthood in the Senate demonstrates why it would have been so hard to get it inserted into any final budget deal, even if House Speaker John Boehner, R-Oh., was willing to shut down the government over it.


In partisan votes, Senate defeats measures to defund healthcare and Planned Parenthood
The Senate on Thursday defeated two resolutions to amend the fiscal year 2011 spending bill that would have blocked funding for Planned Parenthood and all funds to implement last year's healthcare reform law.

On Passage of the Bill
Passed by 21 votes: 81-19 (3/5 required)

Senate approves 2011 spending bill, sends to the president
Both the House and Senate have approved the centerpiece of the deal between congressional leaders and the White House.

BREAKING: Senate passes budget deal
The Senate on Thursday passed the budget deal worked out last week to keep the government funded for the rest of the fiscal year while cutting $38.5 billion.

Senate approves funding bill, sends to Obama
By a vote of 81-19, the Senate has passed a bill to fund the government for the rest of year, officially averting a government shutdown with its approval of the budget deal struck late last week.

Budget deal sails through Senate
With token resistence from the right and left, the Senate voted overwhelmingly to pass the budget deal to fund the government for the remainder of the year, 81 to 19. The measure was opposed by 15 Republicans, three Democrats and the technically independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Government-Funding Bill Heads to Obama
The Senate, acting shortly after the House, voted 81 to 19 to pass a continuing resolution funding the federal government through the end of September, effectively ending a months-long fight that nearly shut down the government this week.
