Collins, Murkowski: We Sunk Skinny
Repeal to Protect Planned Parenthood

Townhall, by Cortney O´Brien

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/9/2017 1:15:31 PM

Two of the senators who singlehandedly derailed the skinny repeal of Obamacare were awarded a sit down interview with the admiring Dana Bash Friday on CNN. The bright faced journalist applauded Sens. Susan Collins (ME) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) for having the “cajones” to vote against the Republican bill when they knew half the country would view them as heretics. Collins admitted it was an “uncomfortable” vote. But, they both insisted it was the right thing to do, which is why they did not fear backlash from GOP leadership, or even intimidating tweets from the Oval Office. Both women said they

This article dovetails with the one posted below regarding Planned Parenthood. Their defense of those murderers is just beyond shameful and appalling. They should be utterly and completely ashamed of themselves. Their alleged concern about the welfare of women is a total lie and their support of PP is indefensible.

A decade or so ago, several state elections posed the question; should government fund abortions. Clear majorities opposed such funding. So abortion proponents took to funding PP as an end run around the will of the people, and thus infanticide is a reality in today´s America.

McConnell should draft a separate bill to fund Planned Parenthood.

Un-couple it from some large funding bill.

Make everyone vote on that stand-alone funding bill for PP.

Then, draft new "skinny" bill on replacing the failed Obamacare experiment.

We were assured that tax payer dollars would not be used for abortions. Obama even promised to write an executive order to that effect.

All lies.......

Abortion at every stage of pregnancy, is the holy grail of the leftists and they will defend it to the death. The will blow up the economy or tge republic itself to slice up fetuses in the womb. Not only will YOU accept it, YOU will be forced to pay for it.

Planned Parenthood is based on a series of bald-faced lies. They don´t provide pap smears or mammograms. They DO provide abortions in huge numbers, and they also sell aborted babies at $400 a pop. Disgusting.

Senators Collins and Murkowski are lying too. They sunk Skinny Repeal because they represent poorer states that don´t want to lose all that Medicare money that Obamacare provided them.

You weren´t the only one #19. Apparently even the writers of Townhall articles aren´t familiar with past participles. It is the height of pathetic intent on how these two harpies voted against the repeal. Planned Parenthood is nothing but a taxpayer funded killer of unborn babies and the whole organization is disgusting. Somewhere on down the line I hope that Crazy Collins and the Mur-Kow pay for what they´ve done but getting an early retirement. You hear that Maine and Alaska. Surely you can do better than these two.

When Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey goes on trial on federal corruption charges in less than three weeks, far more than his own fate hinges on the outcome. If Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, is convicted and then expelled from the United States Senate by early January, his replacement would be picked by Gov. Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey and an ally of President Trump. That scenario — where Mr. Menendez’s interim replacement would more than likely be a Republican — would have immediate and far-reaching implications: The Republicans would be gifted a crucial extra vote just

A House Democrat introduced a resolution on Friday suggesting that President Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to help determine whether he is fit for office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s (D-Calif.) resolution specifically calls on Vice President Pence and Trump’s Cabinet members to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals” to “assist in their deliberations” invoking the 25th Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures. It posits that such an examination by doctors would “determine whether the president suffers from mental disorder or other injury that impairs his abilities and prevents him from discharging his Constitutional duties.

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

WASHINGTON — Five days after President Donald Trump took office, he signed an executive order that promised a swift, sharp crackdown on illegal immigration — immediate construction of a massive border wall, quick hiring of 5,000 new Border Patrol agents and stepped-up deportation of undocumented migrants. "Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders," Trump declared at the Jan. 25 ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security, which controls federal immigration agencies.

Thousands of anti-fascist protesters are marching through the streets of Boston in protest of right-wing activists hosting a ´free speech´ rally on Saturday. Only a handful of attendees could be spotted against the swarm of the estimated 15,000 counter-protesters who chanted loudly as they made their way towards Boston Common. Organizers of the rally had attempted to distance themselves from the neo-Nazis, white supremacists and others who fomented violence in Charlottesville last week. The city mayor had pleaded for counter-protesters to stay away, saying their presence would draw more attention to the far-right activists and could result in violence.

Ten sailors are missing and five have been reported injured after the USS John S McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel on Monday morning, the Navy has said. The collision between the US guided-missile destroyer and merchant vessel Alnic MC was reported at 5.24am local time. The John McCain was underway east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, on its way to a routine port visit in Singapore. It is now sailing under its own power and heading to port, the Navy said. The crew is reportedly fighting flooding in two crew berthings and an area of the ship known as the 'shaft alley'.
