Emasculated Republicans Block Effort to Defund Planned Parenthood

Senate Republicans had a chance to stop Planned Parenthood from butchering unborn children and selling their body parts to the highest bidder. Instead, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to put up a vote—thumbing his nose at Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz, along with every pro-lifer in the nation.

That sort of emasculated leadership is why Donald Trump is surging in the polls. 

What happened over the weekend was an unprecedented display of cowardice from chicken-hearted politicians. It was a dastardly double-cross.

Senator Cruz delivered this blistering rebuke:

"To the millions of Americans who rallied in November believing if only we got a Republican majority in the Senate something would be different, this was a clarifying and a sad moment."

Indeed, it is, senator.

Come Election Day, voters have a choice—Democrats or Republicans.

But after what happened over the weekend, I'm not too sure it really matters whom we vote for. In the words of Hillary Clinton, "What difference does it make?"
