The Senate Majority Leader, RINO Mitch McConnell made it clear that he isn’t going to make a push to defund Planned Parenthood. He is afraid of a pubic backlash and the way the public views Republicans.
Keep going, Mitch, and in 15 months, you’ll get exactly what you want – a return to minority status. No responsibility to do anything, no blame, and you still get to ride in the limo, take the private jet, and do nothing for that taxpayer-funded paycheck. Actually you need to be set out to pasture to live the last years of your pathetic life.
McConnell is an embarrassment. He is a bumbler and a spineless, worthless idiot. He has no clue how to handle anything. Mitch cares more about bureaucrats’ paychecks than about the lives of children.
Socio-Political Journal reports:
“We’ve been down this path before,” McConnell said. “This is a tactic that has been tried going back to the ’90s and it always has the same ending — that the focus is on the government shutdown and not on the underlying issue that is being protested.
We are not doing government shutdowns and we are not threatening to default on the national debt.”
The Majority Leader said, however, that the investigations into Planned Parenthood, led in the Senate by Chuck Grassley (R-IA), will press forward as planned.
“We intend to continue to pursue the facts, and we’ll look for other opportunities to make our voices heard on Planned Parenthood.”
McConnell’s delaying of a fight over Planned Parenthood funding will likely rankle the more conservative members of the Senate who recently led the unsuccessful charge to defund Planned Parenthood. Many pro-life congressmen and activists are concerned that if GOP leaders don’t push for defunding soon, they could squander the most valuable moment in the history of the pro-life movement. Now is the moment when unprecedented public scrutiny is descending upon Planned Parenthood, owing to the horrifically revealing videos released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). That scrutiny has produced a wave of public pressure on politicians to defund the abortion provider — but as with any wave of pressure, it will only last for a limited time.
CMP has spread out the releasing of its videos, and that strategy has kept the issue in the public eye. There may be upward of 10 videos to come. If CMP can sustain the public attention brought upon Planned Parenthood, it will only buy time for congressional action to take place. If congressional investigations also find specific evidence of illegal activity at Planned Parenthood, that would propel the issue further into the news and motivate punitive action against Planned Parenthood.
McConnell: “I can tell you without fear of contradiction there will be no government shutdown.”
Translation: “I want to communicate to the Democrats that I will not stand in their way, no matter how morally corrupt and unlawful they are, because I am actually just like them and I want to be part of their little club.”
All McConnell and his gravy train caucus care about is being “on the record”, because in the past that’s been enough to shut up the pro-life movement without rocking the gravy boat. Not this time Mitch. Pro-lifers only care about stopping the tragic slaughter of children, not about meaningless voting “on the record.” Gonna have to do better than that to save your precious name.
If you won’t represent the will of the people then resign. You’re starting to make Harry Reid look good.
God Bless. Dean James III%
