I voted Republican and all I got was was this lousy Pence Amendment

Where are the jobs we were promised during the elections? Where is the discussion for jobs? The Repubs capitalized on our fear of never finding a job again. They promised they’d focus the economy and give up the moral values war that’s been falling ever lower on the priority lists of average Americans for years.  And yet now we have the Pence Amendment.

Nevermind that Planned Parenthood already did NOT use federal funds for abortions. They were already prohibited from doing so. This amendment stripped Planned Parenthood of the funding it used to provide contraceptives, STD treatment and screening, and education….with contraception and education being the only ways it is even possible to reduce abortion.

But either way, this is not what people signed up for.
