If GOP Can't Defund Planned Parenthood, They Don't Deserve 2016 White House

House Speaker John Boehner may or may not defund Planned Parenthood, telling reporters that he wants to get the facts first.

You want facts, Mr. Speaker?

OK—call up Planned Parenthood and see what the going rate is for an aborted baby's backbone.

You want facts, sir?

How about more than a half billion American tax dollars are being used to fund Planned Parenthood's killing fields.

But instead of taking a bold stand, he sidestepped the issue. It's outrageous. And the Republicans wonder why Donald Trump is leading in the polls right now?

I'm not a Trump supporter; I just enjoy how much he infuriates establishment Republicans. For years, they've been campaigning as conservatives but governing as Democrats. But now the jig is up.

Donald Trump is a businessman. He knows what's selling and what's not. And more than any other candidate, he understands the conservatives aren't buying what the Republicans are selling.

So here's the bottom line: If the GOP can't muster the moral courage to defund Planned Parenthood, they don't deserve the White House in 2016.
