Club for Growth Calls the Ball: Republicans should move on from defunding Planned Parenthood
With less than 24 hours to go until a shutdown, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) suggested that a rider to defund Planned Parenthood, a key sticking point in reaching an agreement, was expendable.
“I’d like to defund Planned Parenthood, but I understand that Republicans don’t have complete control of the elected government, “Toomey said on MSNBC. “I think what we should do is cut spending as much as we can, get the policy changes that we can, but move on, because there are other, bigger battles that we are fighting.”
“[We] just need to recognize,” Toomey said on MSNBC. “We should aggressively go for everything we can get and move on.”
