if and when it passes senate, I think Obama will ignore it(which is the same as a veto virtually after about a couple weeks).
That's only the case if Congress adjourns within ten days after the bill is passed. If Congress is still in session at the ten day point and the President has not signed the bill, it becomes law. The former is called a pocket veto and there's a pretty lively history of its use, going back to Lincoln.
