VVN agrees with Jill Stanek and Huckabee

From a fiscally conservative perspective it appears we got the best cuts we could get without jeopardizing the 2012 elections with a Government Shut Down (see Americans Favor Budget Compromise Over Shutdown, 58%-33%). In fact they are the biggest cuts ever. Here is Huckabee on the budget cuts.

Here is Jill Stanek pretty much in agreement with Huckabee on Planned Parenthood and that "Speaker Boehner did the best he could."

"I am disappointed about PP but not surprised. We hoped and worked for a miracle, and it didn’t happen. Pro-lifers only rule 1 of 3 branches of government at present.

I reiterate I am amazed the fight over PP got so much attention and was apparently the biggest obstacle. As I tweeted today, this process has only dumped more disastrous PR on PP’s brand. And as Steve Ertelt just tweeted, the Senate PP vote “allows [the] pro-life side to further expose nation’s biggest abortion business. Speaker Boehner win.”

I think Speaker Boehner did the best he could."

As far as the pro-life victories we can rejoice that American Tax Payers will not be funding abortions in DC as that was part of the agreement and there will still be a debate and vote on defunding Planned Parenthood in the Senate which will put moderate Democrats in a tight spot. Here is what pro-lifers got out of the deal from Boehner's blog:

  • GUARANTEES SENATE VOTE & DEBATE ON DE-FUNDING PLANNED PARENTHOOD.  The agreement with Senate Democrats guarantees a Senate debate and vote on legislation that would end federal funding for Planned Parenthood. 
  • BANS TAXPAYER FUNDING OF ABORTION IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.  The agreement includes a complete ban on local and federal funding of abortion in the District of Columbia, applying the pro-life principles of the Hyde Amendment (“D.C. Hyde”).
