Senators Block Spending Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood for One Year

A government spending bill that prohibited Planned Parenthood from receiving federal dollars for one year and kept the government operating failed in the Senate today.

The continuing resolution, introduced earlier this week by Senate Republican leaders, fell short of the 60 votes needed to advance in the upper chamber after senators blocked the measure, 47-52.

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Dean Heller of Nevada, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Susan Collins of Maine all voted against advancing the measure. Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia was the only Democrat to vote “yes.” (See how your senators voted below.)

Traitors should be hanged.

They should be forced to watch an abortion or two in person.

Both Mitch McConnell and John Boehner need to be removed. If they can not lead their respective government departments to vote properly based upon what their constituents want them to do, then they are not true leaders....

Their RINO "leadership" exemplifies why the GOP is on its death bed.



Yet another reason why Rand Paul is not fit to be POTUS.

The only reason they brought it up was because they knew it would go through.    They are all in cohoots together !

Those who voted no on this bill will stand before Creator God with the blood of the innocent children on their hands.  Jesus said it would be better if a man had a millstone tied around his neck and he be thrown into the seas than for him to offend one these little ones (paraphrased).  I pity them when they stand before Him on judgment day.

Tom Cotton? How did tht happen. The rest are th usuals.
Blood thirsty Feinstein and Peters! How can they sleep?

Rand Paul???

That Sen. Casey of Pa. that SOB has got to go he has a Zero voteing  record  on Voteing against the Peoples wishes.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
