Democrats are in the middle of trying to pass one of the biggest spending bills in our history. It’s supposed to be a bipartisan relief bill, but they are refusing to work with Republicans.
Since they’ve already decided not to cooperate with conservative lawmakers, they are forcing all sorts of things into this package.
Instead of just providing funding for issues related to relieving the crisis, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are cramming liberal goals into this “reconciliation” move.
From Western Journal:
According to the Washington Free Beacon, the Biden administration’s $1.9 trillion bailout package includes $50 million that will go toward the Title X program. However, the new administration will almost certainly end the Trump administration’s rule regarding funding organizations that provide abortion referrals — which means, essentially, the move restores a significant revenue stream for Planned Parenthood.
According to reports, Democrats are trying to add $50 million in funding for the Title X program into their relief package.
Many believe this money will go to clinics like Planned Parenthood, as Biden will most likely end a Trump rule forbidding money from going to that organization.
Under the Trump administration, no “family planning” Title X funding could go to a clinic or group that referred to abortion providers.
It was a hotly-contested rule, that was challenged. But Trump ultimately won, depriving Planned Parenthood and other groups from taxpayer dollars.
But it is likely that Biden will revoke that rule, making sure this additional $50 million funding will go to PP and similar organizations.
Although previously claiming to be “pro-life” personally, Biden’s policies will be widely pro-choice. He even promised during the campaign that he’d make Roe V. Wade the “law of the land,” should the Supreme Court overrule it.
You might be wondering why Democrats are even bothering to jam through a package with their goodies when it is meant to address the crisis at hand.
That’s a good question. We should ask the Democrats. It seems like they care less about addressing real problems and more about forcing through their agenda.
Because they have enough votes to make this happen, they are seemingly abusing their power. We might even wonder how much of this budget will actually go toward relief, rather than liberal priorities?
- Democrats want to add $50 million in Title X funding into the relief package.
- Biden will most likely end a Trump rule forbidding PP from Title X funding.
- This will effectively send tax dollars to abortion providers.
