U.S. House votes to overturn Obama’s mandate forcing states to fund Planned Parenthood

The U.S. House voted 228 to 188 Thursday to overturn President Obama’s mandate forcing states to fund abortion giant Planned Parenthood. H.J. Res. 43, sponsored by Rep. Diane Black, passed with bipartisan support, and would reverse Obama’s parting gift to the abortion industry.

When it was passed in the waning days of his presidency, media reports proclaimed that Obama had made a permanent law preventing states from defunding Planned Parenthood. Black’s measure, however, allows states to use family planning funds under Title X in ways that do not support groups committing abortion — like Planned Parenthood.

Speaker Paul Ryan notes that Black’s resolution may change that seemingly permanent rule due to the Congressional Review Act:

The Health and Human Services rule bans states from withholding Title X funds from organizations that perform abortions, like Planned Parenthood.  Many states have distributed these funds, not to Planned Parenthood, but to effective community health centers that do not perform abortions. Ultimately, states know the needs of their communities better than bureaucrats in Washington. But this regulation strips states of their longstanding ability to decide how federal funds should be used in their state. This repeal would restore the proper balance of powers.

Black testified on February 14, 2017, before the House Rules Committee about her resolution, and she had strong words about the Obama edict:

She testified:

 As members of this committee may know, Title X has existed as a federal family planning grant program since 1970, and states have always had the freedom and flexibility to dole out those grants to the providers of their choice.

In my home state of Tennessee, for example, our Title X funding goes exclusively to the Tennessee Department of Health which then determines appropriate sub-grantees. These are made up primarily of county health departments.

We’ve been able to effectively use our share of Title X funding to provide women and families with the care they need, all while asserting our state’s right to steer these taxpayer dollars away from abortion providers in Tennessee.

Now, under this eleventh hour Obama Administration rule – finalized after President Trump was elected and made enforceable just two days before he took office – Tennessee has lost that right.

Commenting on the lack of freedom Tennessee and other states have been given, despite their tenth amendment rights, Black notes that Washington, D.C., has usurped states’ rights. Those rights should be returned to them to make health care decisions for their own constituents, she says.

Kristi Ann, you're so right, 60 million babies.  Of those 60 million babies I don't know what the estimates are but I guess probably a good 90% are black babies.  If that's the case, then I really wonder why the Blacks don't call it what it is "genocide" against black people?

Stop funding death factories!

Stop making money$ from murdered children, there must be a special place in hell for people that kill babies for profit!?

May God Bless this Representative. 

This is the FIRST step in bringing America back to God!

We all hated Hitler, yet we have killed more human beings than he did during WWII. 

I pray that this is a start to bringing America back to God so we will not fall like so many other nations of the world. Let's pray it is!!

Congress needs to pass a law which requires ALL Regulations to be approved by a vote in Congress before they become final... enforceable. We must not let nameless, unelected, bureaucrats from effectively writing law thru the regulatory process.

This doesn't defund Planned Parenthood.... it provides State's with the ability to direct Title 10 funds only... as they see fit.  State's may still provide funds to Planned Parenthood. This is not a total victory over government funded abortions. Planned Parenthood will likely receive funds from many of our States... and they will continue to use those funds to pay for facilities that provide abortion.

This is a step in the right direction but not a victory...

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
