GOP Giving Up On Making Cuts To Planned Parenthood
According to Politico, congressional Republicans are giving up on cutting federal funding for Planned Parenthood as Democrats prepare to take control of the House in January.
Some members, likes Texas senator Ted Cruz, tried to mount support for one last bid to push through with cuts, Obamacare repeal and other conservative priorities this week.
However, most Republicans, who are rattled by the possibility of an upcoming government shutdown due to President Donald Trump’s border wall demands, dismissed the bid.
Energized Planned Parenthood officials and their supporters have said the 2018 midterm elections were a mandate in favor of their agenda going forward.
