Fuck the Republican Party
- These bastards do jack shit while selling out the American People.
- There are always endless excuses why spending can't be cut, the border can't be sealed, etc. The GOP is simply a post office to process the orders issued by the Democrat National Committee and Wall Street.
(Washington Examiner) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., made the strongest statement yet on Tuesday that the Republican-led Congress will not attempt to defund Planned Parenthood in must-pass government funding legislation this fall.
Speaking to WYMT Television in his home state of Kentucky, McConnell said the pending "battle" over government funding would not include a provision to strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood.
Abortion watchdog group Center for Medical Progress released a new video Tuesday, which is likely to stir anger among conservative lawmakers eager to strip taxpayer funding provided to Planned Parenthood.
But it won't happen in the Senate, McConnell said.
"The president made it very clear he is not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood," McConnell told WYMT. "That's another issue that awaits a new president."
McConnell said the GOP simply lacks the votes to pass such a measure, signaling his view that there is no way conservatives will get their way on the matter while President Obama is in the White House.
