Do Or Do Not. There Is No Try.

Republicans in the Congress are beginning to use the word “try.” They will try to defund Planned Parenthood. But the President has a veto and they do not have the votes to override the veto.

[mc_name name=’Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’G000359′ ] has moved from try to “can’t.” He says Republicans cannot defund Planned Parenthood because of the President’s veto.

This is really, really simple.

If Republicans do not defund Planned Parenthood, they will see a great portion of their base vanish overnight. That is not an exaggeration.

Planned Parenthood, we now know, is killing living children who have already been born, cutting them up, and harvesting their organs.

If Abraham Lincoln’s Party cannot go to war against that where war is not bullets, just a government shut down until the President relents, then Abraham Lincoln’s Party needs to be put on the ash heap of history. It really is that simple.

Either defund Planned Parenthood or do not defund Planned Parenthood. The future of the Republican Party is at stake. The Democrats know this better than the GOP. So President Obama will block it. The Republicans must not try, but must hold steady until he yields.

It is so simple it is hard.
