Pence breaks Senate tie on Planned Parenthood funding bill
foxnews.com ^ | 3/3/17 | ap

Posted on 03/30/2017 10:33:00 AM PDT by ColdOne

The GOP was forced to keep a procedural vote open for just over an hour after two Republicans senators, Alaska's Lisa Murkowski and Maine's Susan Collins, voted against moving ahead on the measure. During that time, the GOP got Pence to the Senate to break a 50-50 tie and cast the deciding vote.

He previously broke a tie on the nomination of Betsy DeVos to be education secretary.

A final vote on the bill is expected later Thursday, when Pence's vote likely will be needed again.

Hmmm. I wonder if the Republicans will pull funding from them the way they do the conservatives.

MooKowski, elected through Democrat shenanigans.
She’s bought and paid for.

Alaska's Lisa Murkowski and Maine's Susan Collins

Why don't these two hags just jump ship and join the Liberal party? They never vote (R).

Collins never met an abortion she didn’t like...

I hope we can replace Murkowski and Collins with conservatives. Alaska should have been easier. Maine is a tough sell.

This, and much more, is the action I expect from conservatives.

MOOkowski does more damage as an (R) though. >:(

Those two are truly vile people.

Once again, it’s the ones who have ACTUAL WOMBS who can’t wait to kill babies.

Sick and sad.

Pence broke his first tie on the nomination of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos

Wonder what his ties are made of. Never heard of a tie made of breakable material. Sounds dangerous.

“I wonder if the Republicans will pull funding from them the way they do the conservatives.”

Unlikely. The GOP as an institution is very nearly as bad as the Democrats.

What a crappy writer. There was some picture overlaid on the text so you could not read the header. Why can’t they be clear on what happened and not make you read the whole article a couple times to try to figure out what happened?

Washington Sen. Patty Murray said Republicans "didn't listen to women across the country who made it clear that restricting women's access to the full range of reproductive care is unacceptable."

As well they should not listen to those deluded justifications for infanticide.

BTW, exactly when did infanticide become "reproductive care"? The lying left and their lying labels.

This has nothing to do with the Federal Government funding PP it only knocks down some rule Obama implemented. PP will be fully funded in the budget

I’m going out on a limb here and guessing Pence was against funding the killing of babies.

Yes, one they murder their babies, what reproduction are they caring for? This weasel word language is killing rational thought.
