Congress passed a 1.9 trillion dollar economic stimulus bill in response to extreme government shutdowns over Covid 19 that crippled our economic life. One of the provisions Democrats snuck into the bill was a favor to Planned Parenthood by giving them access to taxpayer money. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul stopped the sneaky maneuver and said “Democrats knew this was never about COVID relief or helping small businesses. It was a shameless attempt to fund their radical agenda on the taxpayers’ backs.” Planned Parenthood is one of the nation’s most morally controversial organizations because of its involvement with abortion and its radical sex-ed agenda, and Sen. Paul’s intervention stopped adding insult to injury to the American taxpayer.
