House Votes to Strip Planned Parenthood of Federal Funding

From ABC News:

The House of Representatives Friday passed a measure to end federal funding for abortion provider Planned Parenthood a day after Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., brought the chamber to stunned silence after describing her own personal experience with abortion.

Friday afternoon, the House passed the amendment by a vote of 240-185. The vote was generally along party lines, with all but seven Republicans voting for the cut, and 10 Democrats voting in favor. One Republican voted present.

The House must still vote for final passage on the underlying spending bill before the cuts head to the Senate for a possible vote later this month.

Here is the video of Jackie Speier discussing her own abortion:

  1. Skip to around 2:10 – that’s where the real action is.
    This Democrat says “Frankly it would be irresponsible” to “wipe out funding for Haliburton”!!
    Really?

    You Americans are so fucked to have these tools as your “leftist/progressive” party. What a joke. What a fucking joke.
    We have nothing to learn from you.

    We need to learn from the Egyptians – and so do you!

    1. Once they rise in politics above “local schoolboard advisor”, politicians of all parties generally turn corrupt, focused on nothing more than keeping their own jobs and benefits while the rest of us lose ours.

      Unlike in Eygpt, rioting in the streets does nothing to sway politicians in the US. Once they’re in the job, laws keep them protected and in place.

      And that, my dear is a fucking joke.

      1. Chris didn’t put this video up as an example of a corrupt politician.
        More like she’s “fighting the good fight”.
        That was my point.

        Stay relevant, Chris. I’m rooting for you.
