Commie Senators to Block Spending Bill Because it Cuts Planned Barrenhood Funding
41 senators vow to oppose Planned Parenthood rider
By Alexander Bolton – 04/04/11 – The Hill
Forty-one senators have pledged to filibuster any bipartisan spending bill that includes an amendment to strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood, threatening an impasse with House conservatives.
The group, led by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), includes thirty-nine Democratic senators and two Independents, Sens. Joe Lieberman (Conn.) and Bernie Sanders (Vt.).
No surprise there.
It’s just large enough to sustain a filibuster to block any spending bill that cuts Planned Parenthood funding from passing the upper chamber.
The group outlined their opposition in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and GOP leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), asking Reid and McConnell to “stand with us against extreme proposals by some members of the House to eliminate support for women’s health and family planning programs and providers that service millions of women and families.”
H.R. 1, the package of spending cuts the House passed in February, would eliminate the Title X family planning program.
Several Republican senators have already voiced opposition to the House cuts.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) wrote a letter to Senate Appropriations Chairman Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) stating their belief that “Planned Parenthood provides vital services to those in need.”
No surprise there. She’s been a red-diaper-doper-baby from day one.
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) has also said she would oppose elimination of Title X funding.
Nope. No surprise there, either. She’s a dyed-in-the-wool commie-red Republican libtard, too.
All-in-all, no surprises. Just commies doing what they do best; killing babies.Explore posts in the same categories: Abortion, politics
