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...

ALERT ALERT!!

BREAKING: White House Makes ANOTHER Move
Supporting Roy Moore … Liberals In PANIC !!

(TeaParty.org) – While the lamestream media has criticized President Donald Trump for his silence on the accusations surrounding Republican candidate Roy Moore, and also claimed that his silence is proof of his disapproval of the senatorial hopeful, insiders in the White House issued a second statement confirming their support.

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Mick Mulvaney on Monday affirmed that the Trump administration’s stance on the issue is that Alabama voters should cast their vote for Judge Moore despite the allegations that he performed sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old in his 30s, the Hill reports.

“I don’t think it’s making any news to think that a Republican administration is going to want someone in the Senate who is going to vote for a Republican agenda and if they elect a Democrat to that office that’s not going to happen,” Mulvaney said during a segment of Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria.”

Previous support for Moore came from the White House when aide Kellyanne Conway told Alabama voters not to vote for the fake “conservative” Democrat Doug Jones, claiming a vote for him “will be a vote against tax cuts” on “Fox & Friends.” She added that the Democrat, despite his self-styled label, is “weak on crime, weak on borders,” all but implying that they should choose Moore instead.

Even the Crooked News Network is waking up and realizing that Trump did not, in fact, fall for their smear campaign against Moore:

“By refusing to intervene ahead of Alabama’s December 12 special election, Trump is rejecting Senate Republican leaders’ view that a Moore victory would bring disastrous consequences for the GOP’s brand and needs to be stopped at all costs.”

Initially when asked, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement that said the administration was holding back any judgement or endorsement, and trusted the people of Alabama to decide on the allegations facing Moore. But it’s become clear – and a relief to Trump-supporters in the state – that the president is going to welcome and support one of the only senators who will actually back his agenda.

Marc Short, legislative director, caving in to the pressure of badgering liberal reporters, suggested that Trump wasn’t campaigning for Moore because of doubts surrounding the candidate’s innocence.

“If he did not believe that the women’s accusations were credible he would be down campaigning for Roy Moore. He has not done that,” Short said. Clearly, Short had no idea what he was talking about at the time.

While the president has yet to officially endorse Moore, during a briefing with reporters on Monday, Sanders issued a new statement that resonated with tones of approval for the Alabama Republican, reports CNBC.

“The president wants people in the House and Senate who support his agenda,” Sanders said. Since there are absolutely no other candidates in the race who support the president’s agenda, this is obviously an endorsement for Moore. Trump wants people in his government who are true Republicans, not Democrats or RINOs, no matter what nasty rumors liberal slimeballs spread about them.
