Huckabee Just Made a Shocking Confession About GOP Planned Parenthood Funding

By Ben Johnson. Inside the Beltway support for things like the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill, which funds Planned Parenthood, is the reason so many former Republicans are leaving the party, presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said in an interview December 23.

Speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Huckabee said the bill – which passed both Republican-controlled chambers of Congress recently – “put a lot of people over the top,” because after “working hard to get Republican majorities in the House and the Senate,” grassroots conservatives fail to see “significant policy changes.”

“That’s why people in the Republican Party are just bolting for the door,” he told former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough. Rev. Franklin Graham recently announced he is leaving the Republican Party over the funding of Planned Parenthood, among other things.

After Funding Planned Parenthood, Hypocrites in Congress to Send Obama a Certain-to-Fail “Show” Bill Defunding the Group

By Dr. Susan Berry. Next week, Congress is expected to send President Obama a bill that would both defund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare’s mandates and the taxes that enable the law.

The measure has already been approved by the Senate, and House passage appears assured as well.

Associated Press reports GOP aides have said a House vote against Obamacare and Planned Parenthood is slated for January 6, just days before Obama’s final State of the Union address on January 12. Obama would have 10 days to veto the bill, which he has already threatened to do.

The annual March for Life – during which hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists will descend upon the national mall in Washington, D.C. – will be held January 22.

Republicans have reportedly scheduled a vote to override Obama’s anticipated veto of the legislation on January 26, though it is unlikely they will have the votes to accomplish an override. Still, the plan will garner media attention especially with the March for Life held just prior to the planned vote. (Read more from “Congress to Send Obama Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood” HERE)

    They know that this POS president will vetoe this bill…this is just window dressing for us citizens….they could have held the Omnibus bill as hostage until PP was defunded. Smoke and mirrors and deception from the RINOS

  • Nate

    What is revealed in the Omnibus bill approval is that we have a government that only represents the will of the elites. “Of the People, By the People, and For the People” has become a symbol of what America used to be. “Republican” means nothing.

  • Kent2012

    it would see as though the GOP is going through a major change, much like the old Democrat party did in the sixties when it became the Socialist Democrat Rape America Party….and gave us clowns like jimah and billy “the rapist traitor” clintoney and his ho, and kenyan boyo, the racist leg humping rag loving communist illegal alien…

  • palintologist

    How is the Huckster’s statement shocking? None of the DC crowd is leaving the party, just the non-entities out here in flyover land.

  • SF soldier

    Remember the RINO’s come election time. Clean our house! Live a clean life! Our LORD is watching. Better still recall these so called officials!

    • Naturalism

      Maybe your LORD should just go on TV and tell people what He thinks they should do. It sure would clarify a few things.

      Maybe first I should ask whether you think your LORD has the power to appear on TV? Maybe he doesn’t, I don’t know.

      But until He is the most special guest ever on Hannity, we’ll all just have to keep on guessing what He wants and fighting about it.

      • SF soldier

        Maybe you should ask yourself that question, maybe you should go on tv and tell us all, so we “under stand.”

  • ONTIME

    If ever the proof needed to demand term limits no retirement of all elected and appointed gov officials, a ballot driven consumption tax and a ban on all gov unions, this last legislative sell out lie package was all and more than needed……this is not what we pay those we elect for, the representation we want is not being administered by a corrupt gov……

    “after working hard to get Republican majorities in the House and the Senate grassroots conservatives fail to see significant policy changes.”

    Guys, you had not only the House and the Senate but also the Presidency back in the early Bush days. And you did see lots of policy changes! Lots of them.

    For instance, you saw massive increases to the deficit, new entitlements (Medicare D), and a federal takeover of education (NCLB). That’s what you voted for, right?

    You wanted change, you got it: bigger government, more federal control, more transfer payments. That’s the true Republican agenda. If you don’t like it, VOTE FOR A DIFFERENT PARTY.

    Then we got a Dem in the White House and what have you seen? A reduction in the deficit, a smaller federal workforce, and return of education control to the states. That’s what you get when you vote for Dems.

    • SF soldier

      Boy are you in the twilight zone!

      • Naturalism

        Hmm, for “some strange reason” you didn’t mention which part you think is wrong. Maybe because none of it is.

        Look, I get it, you all want certain things and you vote for the party which promises you those things. But they have fooled you for FIFTY YEARS when will you wake up and stop voting for Republicans?

        • SF soldier

          Fool you are just a fool

    • CountryBoy

      WHAT have you been SMOKING ????

      If given that choice between the Bush and Obama economic policies, I would have to take Bush.

      And that is because under Bush;

      1) We had a record 52 consecutive months of economic growth.

      2) When Bush came in office he reduce government spending down to 4.6% of GDP

      3) After Pelosi and Ried took over Congress in 2006 spending increased to 6.4% of GDP

      4) Under Obama government spending has increased to over 9% of GDP.

      5) In June of 2007 the above mention 52 months of economic growth came to an end.
      ( Notice that the democrats came into power in 2006 and they controlled the budget.)

      6) Bush tried on multiple occasions to reign in Freddie Mac and Fannie May but was blocked by democrats.

      7) Unemployment throughout most of Bush’s tenure as President remained BELOW 5%.

      8) The democrats railed against Bush after unemployment reach 6.2% in 2008
      ( Again notice that the democrats came into power in 2006 and they controlled the budget.)

      9) Obama promised that if we pass the stumulus bill that unemployment would not reach 8%

      10)Current stated unemployment for Obama is 6.7% but the actual unemployment rate is over 13%.

      11)According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, the unemployment rate sat at 4.6 percent back in January of 2007, the same month Democrats took control of the House and Senate. Three and a half years later, unemployment hovers around 9.5 percent, a total of eight million jobs have been lost, and under-employment is at a record high.

      Yeah, I think that I prefer Bush’s economic policies over that of Obama any day.

    The uniparty passes the Omnibus bill ….there are not very many real Republicans …. the majority are with the Democommunists, so I now call them the Uniparty.
