A veritable Who’s Who of Congressional Congressmen are getting tired of having to deal with the GOP recalcitrant congressional leadership and they’ve decided to agitate for stronger and bolder leadership. On the heels of GOP inaction on the Planned Parenthood scandal, 17 conservative leaders in Congress have sent a letter to GOP leadership demanding that something be done – immediately.
If you want to see a list of the best men serving in Congress today, the list below is where you should start – these are the men we should be cheering on and encouraging to fight both the liberals and the squishy leaders in our own Party.
On July 29th, seventeen Members of Congress and I sent a letter to leadership to express the need to end funding for #PlannedParenthood.
The text of the letter follows:
It is with great urgency that we write concerning Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
We are deeply disturbed at recent reports that Planned Parenthood has been selling the tissue of unborn babies for profit. As firm believers in the sanctity of life, beginning at conception, we are horrified at these reports. It is imperative that Congress do everything within its power to investigate these reports and take immediate action to stop them.
In the meantime, we must act to fully defund Planned Parenthood. Please know that we cannot and will not support any funding resolution – an appropriations bill, an omnibus package, a continuing resolution, or otherwise – that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood, including mandatory funding streams.
In addition, we think that it would be helpful to all House Republicans to have a special conference at the earliest possible date to discuss how best to address these atrocities.
These activities by Planned Parenthood cannot go unanswered by Congress. We look forward to your response and prompt attention in this matter.
