For much of her life, Hillary Clinton had but one real goal—to be president of the United States. She didn’t make it last November and many political pundits believe she will not get another chance. But, don’t worry. This week Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood of New York City jointly announced they are having a gala on May 2, 2017, and will name Hillary the “Champion of the Century.” The award is being given for Hillary’s steadfast support of abortion and of the nation’s largest abortion chain—Planned Parenthood. The award is not as good as being president, but, hey, at least it’s something.
Congress is on recess this week, but we hear there is much behind-the-scenes activity trying to garner the support needed to pass the fiscal year 2917 reconciliation bill. The bill was supposed to be voted on a couple of weeks ago, but the vote was postponed because of problems with the healthcare portion. If members of Congress cannot work out the details, we recommend that they take that out of the bill and pass the one year withdrawal of federal funds from Planned Parenthood. We understand there is enough support to get that part of the bill through both houses of Congress and on to the president for his signature. Wouldn’t it be great if they could get all this done by May 2? What a great way to rain on Planned Parenthood’s gala!
