Planned Parenthood has been a hot topic for YEARS now. As time goes by and information comes out, pro-choicers violently defend their local clinics, and big name politicians and pundits get involved and discuss the topic — often times with little results.
Mike Huckabee sent a strong message to Congress, which currently has some issues about what they are going to do regarding healthcare, including the fate of Planned Parenthood. Huckabee tweeted, “If the GOP Congress can’t even stop Planned Barrenhood funding, then they are as worthless as a milk bucket under a bull.”
He has a FANTASTIC point! Congress needs to come together and tackle these issues. The Left has not made this easy. They are constantly protesting nonsensical causes that are non-issues. They will attack the gender gap, which was proven to be false. They will argue that women have fewer rights than men, but, last time we checked, those days are done.
All of this is holding us up from the main issues, like defunding Planned Parenthood and repealing and replacing the trainwreck known as Obamacare. The good news is that House Speaker Paul Ryan released a new plan a few days ago that would change these issues and make some serious progress in rebuilding our country.
According to the Washington Examiner, they are working on an Obamacare repeal bill. This bill would need just 51 votes for it to pass. The bill is going to include a reconciliation.
The reconciliation included with this bill is going to federally defund Planned Parenthood for one year. Now what will happen is, we can get the repeal passed, then bam, done. That means the Obamacare issue is resolved.
It is going to take some time to hammer out the details of a new healthcare plan as well as officially closing out Obamacare. That is why the there is the year reconciliation on Planned Parenthood.
Before the year is up, they will be able to come up with an additional plan for Planned Parenthood. President Trump said that he would agree to leave SOME federal Planned Parenthood funds if they stop performing abortions. The year without funding will give the people running the clinics time to figure out if they REALLY need federal funding. Spoiler alert: THEY DO NEED IT!
Once they realize that they have messed up and require the funding to remain active, they will be more likely to wheel and deal with President Trump. There will be a plan worked out to reduce the insane amount of money going to this organization every year. Up until this point, President Trump has done EVERYTHING in his power to make this run smoothly. It is up to Congress to make this process efficient at this point.
Essentially, that is what Huckabee was trying to say about Congress. They cannot even come to an agreement about Planned Parenthood, let alone the other stuff. It boils down to one line: GET YOUR STUFF TOGETHER NOW! We couldn’t agree more. We know this new plan from Ryan will come together and the PATRIOTS of this country will tackle these problems head-on!
