GOP Probe Into Planned Parenthood Funding Comes Up Empty

Source: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Thursday that the GOP's investigation into Planned Parenthood's use of federal funds hasn't turned up anything.

"Did I look at the finances and have a hearing specifically as to the revenue portion and how they spend? Yes. Was there any wrongdoing? I didn't find any," he said during a Judiciary Committee hearing on the family planning provider.

Chaffetz, a candidate for House speaker, grilled Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards during a five-hour hearing last week. He questioned her salary, asked about the organization's expenses and revenues, and pressed Richards on why the group had revenue of $127 million last year if it's a nonprofit. (Nonprofits put their revenues back into their programs.)

1. Maybe he should see if they discriminate against GOP party members in employment

 

There might be grounds for that...

Fat chance the GOP puts head ogre Wayne LaPierre on the hot seat and asks about his salary.

4. Nah, there's no groups of voters that can be swayed by arguing the sun never came up.

 

Now if there were a sizable group of solar denialists...

That wouldn't be too far out there for them.

5. .

 

Planned Parenthood sells aborted infants to body parts marketeers who complain because they are receiving fetuses who are still alive. On the other hand, body parts cant be used off of a dead body. This is the kind of nightmare going on under our noses. And we debate over whether they are turning themselves a profit as a nonprofit corporation?

Spoonfeeders here will ask me for links but i heard it and you can look up what you want to know about and not look up what you dont want to know about. The world is a prettier place for you that way.

Maybe that story didnt make it to the latest breaking news, i wonder why.

(i find it offensive to be demanded to enter a 'subject' line when replying in a thread. That should be optional.)

7. I used to rationalize that providing evidence

I used to rationalize that providing evidence and objective source material supporting my premise was merely kowtowing to spoonfeeders too... the world was prettier for us that way, yes?

10. Absolutely.

Just make up the evidence as you go... especially the hearsay kind.

Then get a doctored film to rely on.

Mix well.

And voila! People will totally freak out and start burning down the
clinics. Lawmakers and judges will then have a reason to get all preachy and
sanctimonious and start practicing medicine from the legislature and the bench.

And there will be a great result hailed throughout the world, and God will smilel
down from heaven because no poor woman will have access to any sort of
reproductive healthcare or birth control.

Oh wait. I used the wrong tense. Oh well ...
