Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins
open up about ´uncomfortable´
votes to sink healthcare repeal

Washington Examiner, by Leah DePiero

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/4/2017 4:55:49 PM

Two Republican senators who voted against the "skinny" healthcare repeal last week said they were concerned the bill cut funding for Planned Parenthood, and that they were working in the best interest of their states. "The issue of family planning services, cancer screenings, [and] women care probably does resonate with us more than it does with our male colleagues, and to me it was so unfair to single out one Medicaid provider and say to women in particular, ‘You can´t choose which health care provider you want to go to,´" said Maine Sen. Susan Collins, who appeared on CNN with Sen.

Comments:
Mega barf alert for this one. Bear in mind when reading this bilge that it was taken from an interview with CNN. If those to hack women didn´t have an "R" after their name nothing would convince you after what they have said that they are really Democrats. If they honestly cared about women they would NEVER expand Medicaid and pretend that it was good for them.

Liars both. PPH is nothing more than an abortion mill and the services both these louts listed can be obtained from other providers. I hope the good people of Alaska and Maine kick these two backstabbing harpies to the curb, and soon!

Time to man up, Ladies!
We are tired of you condoning the termination of a baby´s life. If the baby gestates to term, it will NOT become a ´57 Chevy, but a baby!
Just become the democrats with whom you vote. At least your constituents will know where you stand. Remember that every one of your votes affects the rest of the States.

I´m going to speculate there are only a handful of Planned Parenthood locations in either state.

Let´s say there are 10, let´s have them go to each one, and follow up on what they actually do, and what specific medical procedures they perform.

I´ll bet they don´t find one that provides mammograms, or other procedures besides abortions and PAP smeer tests.

And, if they don´t believe through technology innovations we can provide Medicaid at a slightly lower rate of growth than under current law, they are sadly mistaken.

Just because an organization like Planned Parenthood does some good for women with reproductive health issues does not balance out their principal function which it to reduce the population of poor and minority people. They were, and are, the current embodiment of the eugenics movement in America founded by Margaret Sanger. Collins and Murkowski are either ignorant of, or complicit in, the mission of PP by their vote. Forcing taxpayers to finance population control through abortion is repugnant to many.

They don´t #6. I worked in philanthropy for a while and got to see PP financial reports. One day I called and when I asked for a mammogram appointment, they told me we don´t provide that and hung up.

Oh bull. This is an excuse. Put anything regarding abortion into a bill, and its doomed. Guaranteed. How convenient.

Meanwhile healthcare premiums continue to suck people dry.

How many other Republicans laid low letting these clowns and McCain take all the heat? How many Republicans are masquerading as Conservatives? What a dishonest way to govern. Who put the abortion language into the bill in the first place?

Despise both of them, they do indeed need to be removed from congress since they no longer serve the people.

Susan Collins is a huge disappointment. She´s basking in the accolades from the lefties here in Maine and nationwide. Her reasoning focuses on single payer health care. She´s not a Republican. If she tries to run for Gov. she´s not a shoo-in. Someone is paying big bucks to keep her image up. Ads run constantly touting her stance on "saving Obamacare". She´s detestable.

A mammogram is not a chest xray. A chest film requires simple relatively inexpensive equipment. Most lay people could be trained to do one. A mammo requires expensive equipment and a rad tech needs to do it and must do so many year to remain certified. A poorly done mammo is worthless.

PPH provides only a voucher FOR a mammo that is then done at a hospital or women´s center. Anyone who has had one can kinda figure this out.

I´m truly tired of liberal GOP senators clinging to "for the women" banner cry to save PPH like it is a napkin hanging from the Titanic.

I´ wish these two would switch to the Dem Party along with FLAKE and a few others. I´d rather be in the minority than in the majority with these flakes.

Al Franken appears to be that rarest of senators — one who doesn’t see himself as president. Instead Mr. Franken, a comic-turned-politician, is angling to be a voice of the progressive movement and to ascend the halls of power on the other end of Pennsylvania Ave. at the Capitol. “He isn’t running for president, but he is running to be one of the dominant progressive voices in D.C. — vying with [Sens.

NEW YORK — America´s reality TV president has made America face its reality, on TV.

According to a report from college football blog Outkick the Coverage, ESPN pulled college football announcer Robert Lee game between William and Mary and the University of Virginia because they were concerned students and viewers might be offended by his name. Lee, who is Asian-American, and who is likely not named after the Confederate general, Robert E. Lee, is one of ESPNU´s biggest names, and, for the record, did not fight in the American Civil War, because he wasn´t alive in 1861 (though he is nicknamed, "the General").

Black Lives Matter activist Chanelle Helm released a list of “requests” to white people in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this month. Helm, the so-called “cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville,” explained in an article published at Leoweekly.com the things she says need to “change.” “White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty,” Helm writes in an article titled “White people, here are 10 requests from a Black Lives Matter leader.” White people are asked, “Give up the

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared.

His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had
