No Planned Parenthood cuts in GOP funding bill

by Sarah Ferris and Peter Sullivan  |  published on December 3, 2015

Republicans have not included any measures related to defunding Planned Parenthood in their most recent offer to Democrats on the spending bill, according to a Democratic aide.

But Republicans argue that they are not abandoning their efforts to eliminate federal funding for the organization, even if it won’t be part of this month’s funding bill debate. A GOP aide pointed out that a separate bill repealing ObamaCare that is expected to get a vote in the Senate on Thursday does defund Planned Parenthood.

“The fight over Planned Parenthood is focused on the Senate and the reconciliation process,” the GOP aide said.

    I have come to the conclusion that all of you need to go, i am fed up with you all. I am voting for anything that doesn’t resemble a Democrat OR a Republican. Screw you all.

    Funny, the very bill they know will be vetoed by BO is where they choose their stand. It is a safe bet this was designed as the token attempt to appease the masses by the new rino speaker and his counter part in the senate McConnell. What lousy show types, they are so obvious in their little pointy pin headed way. Vote the base out from under these turds. If their own states vote em in like McConnell, just vote out their power base. In AZ McCain and Flakey are targets, we will vote em out and McCain is going in 2016. Can’t even have open town halls in this state, either one of them. Too many LEGAL constituents are wanting their hides!

      What makes me so damn mad is how they treat us all like we really are stupid sheep. Vote anything with a D or an R OUT.

    Planned Murderers is not even a government organization. So much for the “fighting” Republicans. I am so thankful that God judges each person separately. Joshua’s clear call “Who is on the LORD’s side?”, is still applicable. Choose this day whom you will serve.

    This is GOP Bologna. There isn’t any reason they can’t defund that corrupt PP. They are doing this because its nearing elections. You watch, this corrupt PP will never get defunded. Lies again, people, by the Est.Rep.

      They play people for fools just like the Democrats. I thought there was a difference, how stupid of me. Or maybe i was hopeful.
