"Family Values" guy David Vitter, who favors corporations over sexual assault victims; who wants to defund Planned Parenthood; who was subpoenaed by the D.C. Madam and who has a diaper fetish, has joined forces with Rep. Diane Black (Tenn.) and Rep. Pete Olson (Texas) to-- what else?-- defund Planned Parenthood.
Dozens of Republicans in the House and Senate have asked the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to examine how Planned Parenthood and other groups that provide abortion services are using taxpayer money.
Those spearheading the effort — Rep. Diane Black (Tenn.), Rep. Pete Olson (Texas) and Sen. David Vitter (La.) — are hoping the study confirms their suspicion that these groups are focusing more on abortion and less on other healthcare services. Black said this finding could be used to justify a reduction in federal funds to abortion providers.
Federal law already prohibits the use of taxpayer funding for abortion, and by trying to destroy Planned Parenthood, the GOP is actually destroying the lives of women who depend on these providers for health services of all kinds, including cancer screenings.
63 House Republicans also signed the letter, along with Senators Roy Blunt (Mo.), Mike Enzi (Wyo.), Mike Johanns (Neb.), James Risch (Idaho), and Tim Scott (S.C.).
These so-called representatives of the people clearly suffer not only from tone deafness and serial hypocrisy, but also from Jobortion Syndrome. By the way, patriots, where exactly are those jobs opportunities you sworetogod you'd prioritize?
Meanwhile, state by GOP-run state, a whole lot of pro-forced birth is being forced on Americans the way vaginal ultrasounds are being forced up women's vaginas:
Of course, Republicans deny that there is any kind of War on Women whatsoever.
