Rand Paul defies McConnell to defund Planned Parenthood

WaExaminer- Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., announced late Friday that he will “use every Senate rule” to force his Senate colleagues on the record after fellow Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., blocked his amendment to defund Planned Parenthood.

If Paul gets enough senators to sign his petition, he can go around McConnell and force a vote.

“I’m prepared to use every Senate rule at my disposal to force my colleagues on record whether they like it or not,” Paul wrote Friday night. “Under Senate rules, if enough Senators are willing to stand with me and sign a petition demanding a vote, there will be no stopping you and me.”

“The more I learn about Planned Parenthood’s racket, aborting unborn children and then selling off their organs, the more my head spins,” he wrote. “I’m not about to let Planned Parenthood off the hook. And I’m not about to let politicians and our media sweep this scandal under the rug.”

  1. Rand Paul should have supported Matt Bevin. We’d all be better down the road than we are now. McConnell has done nothing to stop the thief in the White House.

  2. Good-attack that fucking McConnell from 20 different directions-he’s been exposed for all that care to see that he’s and liar-I’d like to have had a BP cuff on him when Ted Cruz was speaking.

  3. I hope Pual succeeds and further embarrasses McConnell. Not that McConnell needs help embarrassing himself, he does a fine job already.

  4. Cruz, Mike Lee, Paul and some others are killing the RINO Party, thank God it’s about fu**ing time. That’s why it’s important to get behind Ted Cruz early and support, volunteer and donate. With Cruz as President the God Awful Party will finally be dead!

  5. Pay close attention to this small issue. You’re going to see here how those in washington fuck you.

    Nothing will happen, but you’re going to see some theater. They’ll come back afterward, if they even bother, and explain why it didn’t happen.

    The cameras are poised and the actors take the stage.

    And they still think you are lower than mud.

    These are the people that nod off during testimony of american citizens killed by people that walked across a border they refuse to close.

  6. You’re wrong about Cruz and Lee. It’s people like you that try and keep Conservatives disillusioned.

  7. McConnell only lies. I’d like to see the Obamacare extinguished even before the defunding of PP comes up. That was his “promise”… to take down Obamacare as we all remember.

  8. I pray that you are wrong and we have finally seen the re-awakening we have been praying for in our elected government.

    It happened once before. Remember that British thing a while back? Some really good men put their livelihoods, family and lives in peril to oppose a tyrant.

    These men weren’t perfect and neither are the men and women today.

    I’m not going to quit hoping and praying.

  9. Said like a true “I’ve given up! Now, get the hell out of my bunker!” kinda guy.

  10. Claire McCaskill and Roy Blunt?

    Yer kidding, right?

    I’m pretty sure they both get donations from the child-murder industry.

  11. Actually, I did:

    “Please support Sen. Paul’s efforts to defund baby-murder-for-profit at Planned Parenthood.”

  12. Could be wrong about Cruz and Lee.

    Opening our eyes to fraud and corruption is NOT being “disillusioned.”

  13. Tim anything is possible. I don’t follow anyone blindly but I have followed both Ted Cruz And Mike Lee very closely, they say what they mean and mean what they say and they are only among a handful of people who have a 100% Conservative rating. This gives me confidence that they aren’t the Washington Cartel sellouts. I guess we shall see.

  14. Because it doesn’t do any good. None of them give a flying fuck what we want or what’s right. Why didn’t cruz et all vote mcconnell and boner out of leadership positions?

  15. two peas in a pod.
    rand paul endorsed mcCONnell, he bought a pig in a poke.
    rand gets the pig and the rest of us get poked.

  16. you should communicate with “Larry the Awesome Sodomite”, I’m certain he’s well versed and could instruct you accordingly.

    Be prepared to be warned, he’s a little sensitive about words like faggot and homo stuff though
