After hearing the great news that Vice President Mike Pence broke the tie-breaking vote on allowing states the rights to withhold taxpayer funds from Planned Parenthood, the one question that I have is this: why did we need a tie-breaking vote in the first place?
We have a Republican majority in the Senate – why in the world would we need the Vice President to step in?
The answer is beyond disturbing: two Republican senators, Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), decided that life of a child is not worth a vote.
From Independent Journal Review:
The Republican-controlled Senate voted on Thursday to roll back an Obama administration regulation and allow states to withhold funds from Planned Parenthood.
After Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) joined the Democrats and voted against the bill, Vice President Mike Pence cast the tie-breaker, his second of the day — Collins and Murkowski earlier voted against beginning debate on the measure…
The regulation, issued by the Department of Health and Human Services in December 2016, prohibited states from withholding Title X funds from “specific types of providers based on reasons unrelated to their ability to provide services in an effective manner.”
It went into effect two days before Obama left office.
Thankfully, we are able to stop this horrible Obama legacy and allow all Americans to greatly pursue life, liberty, and happiness. Look and see what Mike Pence has to say:
It was my honor to break tie vote in Senate overturning last minute Obama rule & restoring state control over Title X family planning funds. pic.twitter.com/jebspF3F3K

These women are a disgrace to all Republicans, womanhood, and America in general. To betray their country and their party in this matter is unacceptable. Hopefully their constituencies are watching this and will drain these swamp slugs out of Washington as soon as their next election comes up!
The more RINOs we can detect and remove from their offices, the sooner we can return to a moral country that focuses on respecting the Declaration of Independence, as well as the US Constitution.
