Fund Planned Parenthood? McCain: ‘I Will Not Vote to Shut Down the Government’

by Mairead McArdle, CNSnews:

When asked whether he would vote for a continuing resolution that permits federal funding of Planned Parenthood, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) responded that he would “not vote to shut down the government.”

The continuing resolution currently in force authorizes funding of most of the federal government through Sept. 30, the last day of fiscal 2015. To fund the government after that date, Congress needs to pass another continuing resolution, which may or may not include language that prohibits federal funds from going to Planned Parenthood.

At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, CNSNews.com asked Senator McCain: “Will you vote for a CR that permits funding of Planned Parenthood?”

McCain said, “I will not vote to shut down the government. I will not vote to shut down the government. I’ve seen that movie before and what it did to Arizona’s–the people of Arizona–and so I can’t. I will not vote to shut down the government.”

Under the Constitution, all expenditures from the U.S. Treasury must be authorized by Congress, both houses of which now have Republican majorities. If the Republican leaders included langauge in the CR to fund the government after Sept. 30 that prohibited funding for Planned Parenthood, Senate Democrats could try to block it with a filibuster, or President Barack Obama could veto it.

The White House has said Obama will veto any legislation that defunds Planned Parenthood.

    Could there be a better example of satanic government than John McCain?

    How ridiculous can “American government” become before the governed wake up?

    I love John McCain! He is a Vietnamese war “Ace” for downing 5 American planes and 1 Navy ship the Forrestal and then blocked efforts to find POWs. Couldn’t have a better agent for pure Evil than McCain.

    A perfect symbol of what this government has become over the past decades. And foolish folks think an election will fix it. I refuse to participate in elections any further. May God have mercy. And if mercy is not coming, may he administer justice.
