Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., says Republicans lack the votes to halt the payments. He also says that standing in the GOP’s way is President Barack Obama, who doesn’t leave office until January 2017.
Mitch McConnell: This Congress won’t be able to defund Planned Parenthood http://t.co/Vao3IpjDKd

Why doesn’t the Senate take a vote anyway and see who’s on record opposing Planned Parenthood and who supports it? It is clear the Republican Party needs new leadership.
Republicans were elected to stop the madness, the leadership is acting like a bunch of children and seems to be more concerned about being “liked.” And the establishment Republicans don’t understand why they are getting trounced by Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and the newcomers.
These Republicans have been showing us how with the majority in both the House and the Senate they still can’t get anything done. Could it be they just don’t have the mental ability to govern.
McConnell – Not enough votes to defund Planned Parenthood, not enough votes to stop the ACA (Obamacare), not enough votes to make Obama a one term President, not enough votes to stop the Iranian Nuclear Deal but he and his party always have enough votes to shut down the Government and raise taxes on the middle class while protecting their friends.
Since no politician is being put on-the-spot to vote for planned parenthood baby parts, how does a career politician know that the vote is not there? Sounds a lot like Harry, the liar to me.

If McConnell was looking to quell conservative anger with GOP leadership, announcing premature surrender on #PlannedParenthood doesn’t do it

Hopefully, the voters will defund McConnell’s paycheck! Grow a pair Mitch, what’s the worse that can happen to you, you get shot down and get called a racists, your retirement is way overdue, that’s why the voters in the Republican base are looking to outsiders not career politicians like yourself.
