Republicans War On The Poor – ‘Planned Parenthood would lose funding as part of Obamacare repeal, Ryan says’
So……..you take away poor people’s health care and then cut the federal budget that would help poor people get birth control, breast and cancer screenings and more.
But there is no Republican War On The Poor.
‘Planned Parenthood estimated that roughly 40 percent of its funding would be at risk should defunding legislation become law’.
‘The group reported receiving $553 million in government funding in 2014, about half of its total revenue’.
‘Republicans plan to strip Planned Parenthood of hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding as part of their rapid push to repeal President Obama’s health-care reforms, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Thursday’.
‘Ryan said a defunding measure would appear in a special fast-track bill that is expected to pass Congress as soon as next month: “Planned Parenthood legislation would be in our reconciliation bill,” he said at a news conference, in response to a question about plans to defund the organization’.
