They left! Congress just picked up and left without taking up the issue to defund Planned Parenthood. Rep. Diane Black from Tennessee authored the bill and so far it has 150 co-sponsors. Breitbart reports:
The House is leaving for its summer recess until September 8 without voting on legislation to defund Planned Parenthood in the wake of the recent gruesome videos released of the abortion giant’s practice of harvesting the body parts of aborted babies for sale to biomedical companies.
What’s the point of having a Republican majority if they’re not willing to take a vote? This is a voter issue folks. If the people we elected to office won’t take action on our behalf, we must take action to remove them and put in people who actually WILL do something!
Congressional “recess” is not “vacation” time for the Representatives, it’s for them to come home and spend time in their districts with constituents. That’s you and me. So call your Congressman’s office and schedule to go pay them a visit. Let them know how you want them to stop wasting taxpayer money on this Planned Parenthood chop-shop situation. Don’t let them forget!
At least the Senate is taking it up before their recess. Hopefully we’ll have a vote there. If not, you know what to do during their recess as well!
