Boehner Votes To Fund Planned Parenthood

There was a little perk in that Continuing Resolution bill that gave Obama money to train so-called "Syrian Moderates" to combat ISIS. What more remains to be said... Boehner, after all, has said on a number of occasions that it's all about getting stuff done...

(CNS News) House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) joined forces early Wednesday evening as the House passed a continuing resolution that will fund the government after the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30, and that will permit funding for Planned Parenthood (the nation's largest abortion provider), the entirety of Obamacare, and an amendment requested by President Barack Obama "to train and equip appropriately vetted elements of the Syrian opposition."

The bill passed 319 to 108 with four members not voting. But there were not enough Republican members to pass the bill without significant support from Democrats. While Pelosi sided with the Republican leadership and voted for the bill, 53 Republicans joined with 55 Democrats in voting against it.

In addition to Pelosi, some of the other Democrats voting for the Republican leadership's bill, included Rep. John Conyers (D.-Mich.), Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schlultz (D.-Fla.), Rep. Xavier Becerra (D.-Calif.), Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D.-Ore.), and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D.-Ill.).

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R.-Texas), Rep. Michele Bachmann (R.-Minn.), Rep. Trey Gowdy (R.-S.C.), Rep. John Fleming (R.-La.), Rep. Jim Jordan (R.-Ohio), and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R.-Calif.) were among the Republicans who voted against it.

  1. I am totally against using the American taxpayers' monies for funding abortion, which is nothing more than MURDER. If a woman does not to get pregnant, then she learn how to abstain from sex or learn how to use birth control pills correctly (which can be obtained free od charge from a local public health clinic , obtain a tubal ligation, or have her male sex partner use a condom.
