Skip to comments.McConnell: Defunding Planned Parenthood must wait for new president
Posted on 09/01/2015 11:48:19 AM PDT by Timber Rattler
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says that defunding Planned Parenthood will have to wait for a new commander in chief in 2017.
The presidents made it very clear hes not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood, so thats another issue that awaits a new president, hopefully with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood, McConnell said Monday on the Kentucky station WYMTs Issues and Answers.
Defunding Planned Parenthood has become a leading cause among some Republicans in the wake of controversial undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the price of fetal tissue for medical research. Planned Parenthood, while apologizing for the tone, denies any wrongdoing, saying officials are discussing legal compensation for expenses and pointing to an analysis that the videos are heavily edited.
McConnell said that the Senate would vote again on defunding Planned Parenthood after a failed Senate vote last month, but he said that the votes are not there.
We just dont have the votes to get the outcome that wed like, he said. Again, the president has the pen to sign it. If he doesnt sign it, it doesnt happen. But, yeah, we voted on that already in the Senate, well vote on it again, but I would remind all of your viewers the way you make a law in this country, the Congress has to pass it and the president has to sign it.

Or in other words, IT'S NEVER ENOUGH!!!
Obamas bitch has spoken!
Kiss my butt McSquishy.
“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says that defunding Planned Parenthood will have to wait for a new commander in chief in 2017.”
We only have half the Congress, We only have Congress, We need the Presidency.
These gutless bastards are a broken record.
Congress has to vote to fund it in the first place. I’d congress refuses, Obama can’t force them to fund it. A shutdown would loom, and Cruz is one of the few senators willing to take on Obama.
Some of ss warned Freepers that Mitch was worse than a Dem. They knew better. They were being ‘pragmatic’.
It’s on their, and the other ‘no matter what’ idiots on the right. 100%.
And we were right. 100%. The worst part is they are more upset about that fact than anything mitch has done or will yet do.
So what if Obama won’t sign the bill? Make him veto it!
Make Obama go on record that he wants baby parts to be sold or he will shut down the government.
Then work to override it.
Someone give this jagoff a spine!
Well, its clear Congress has no say in anything.
Yeah, like they were going to defund Obamacare when they got the Senate.
They have no credibility anymore whatsoever.
McConnell is a spineless scumbag.
Just a typical liberal.
how about a new Senate Majority Leader?
We need someone to grow a pair.
The first order of business for President-elect Trump is to demand the resignation of McConnell.
Blame the messenger. Been tried since B.C.
Re-appoint another Senate Leader...NOW!!!
McConnell unseated NOW!!!
He could have Jonbon’s relative send him one from the group his actions empower. They just have Mitt’s Stericycle burn them to ash anyway.
