Don’t know what defunding Planned Parenthood has to do with creating jobs? You’re not the only one…

The federal government almost came grinding down to a halt a couple of days ago over the Democrats and Republicans inability to reach a deal on the budget until the 11th hour. The Democrats had already agreed to over 70 billion in spending cuts, but there was one issue that was holding up the deal being finalized. It was the Republicans demand for policy riders that would take away federal funds from Planned Parenthood. You know, that crazy hipster organization that does thing like provide cancer screenings for women, HIV counseling, STD treatment, provide contraceptives and abortions. When the Republicans swept into office last election they did so while chanting ” JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!” but many people are asking what exactly does defunding Planned Parenthood have to do with creating jobs?

Watch as Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) tries, and fails miserably, to make the connection via TPMTV Youtube channel.

 

 

Doesn’t he sound a little like Foghorn Leghorn?
