The first two bills that passed in the House this week did not include any provisions to repeal Obamacare.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has not yet indicated if he will sign the two bills, though he is unlikely to be persuaded to do so.
The bills have a total of $1.1 trillion in combined funding and a $1 trillion price tag.
But both the Senate and House versions include a number of provisions to roll back or roll back protections that are set to expire on January 1, 2017.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R -Ky., is expected to sign the House version on Friday, while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R (Calif.) are expected to pass the Senate version on Thursday.
But if Republicans fail to pass any of these bills before the end of the week, the full GOP conference would have to vote on a single one, or two.
If the House passes all three, the Senate will need to vote separately on the House-Senate agreement, and that vote would need to be 60 votes.
That would make it unlikely that any of the five GOP senators in the Senate, Sens.
Susan Collins, R, Maine, Lisa Murkowski, R.
Alaska, Shelley Moore Capito, R., and Shelley Moore Staver, R.-Nev., will support a Senate-passed version of the bills.
John McCain, R –Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R/S.C., have already said they are not likely to vote for the Senate-Senate bill, and are planning to support the House legislation if it passes the Senate.
The two most prominent Republicans in the conference — Sens.
Ted Cruz, R–Texas, and Mike Lee, R.–Utah — have also said they will not vote for a Senate version.
It’s possible that the Republicans could still pass a House-passage deal, but the two chambers would need 60 votes to do it.
The House will need 60 Republican votes to pass it, with Vice President Mike Pence as the tiebreaker.
The Senate has to pass a bill by a simple majority vote, but if there is a tiebreaker, a tie vote is required.
There is a chance that the House could also pass a repeal-only bill that does not include Obamacare protections that expire after January 1.
The most likely scenario is that a vote will be held in the coming days, with the House voting next week.
If a Senate vote does not pass, the House will have to pass an amendment to repeal the protections, which would be a vote against the legislation in the same chamber.
This is an evolving process, and it could change.
But right now, it looks like it will be the House and Senate, not the White House, that ultimately decides how the Senate votes on a repeal bill.
If that happens, it could force the House to vote to pass its own repeal bill, which could then go to the Senate to pass.
