GOP cowards continue to push Cruz to cave on Planned Parenthood funding

The selling of baby parts has been going on for a long time, but only recently have we been able to see how despicable and graphic Planned Parenthood is through undercover videos. Even though we know how evil the practice is, Congress would rather allow it to continue than force a government shutdown. RINOs will do anything to protect the government. ~ ML, 9/18/15
These cowardly Republicans act as if they have no power at all. When in fact, they could change every damn rule in Congress to sway this and many other issues their way, while maintaining the constitutional authority to do so. I've never seen such vigor in gutlessness to prevent a nation from turning away from evil, towards a better course of national healing...
CBS: As Congress prepares a vote to defund Planned Parenthood that could set off a government shutdown, one prominent Republican has some questions for the man leading the charge, GOP presidential hopeful and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

"Given the challenges and threats we face at home and abroad, I oppose risking a government shutdown, particularly when it appears there is no chance of achieving a successful result," Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-New Hampshire, wrote to Cruz in a letter first obtained by local television station WMUR. "Nevertheless, as I understand it, you have been circulating a letter to our colleagues asking them to oppose any government funding bill that continues to authorize funding for Planned Parenthood."

The New Hampshire senator is no supporter of Planned Parenthood. She voted last month to defund the women's health organization, on a bill that only received 53 votes in the Senate -- far short of the 60 votes needed to break the Senate Democrats' filibuster.

"How do we get 60 votes?" Ayotte asked Cruz. "And if for some reason there were 60 votes, how do we get 67 votes in the Senate to overcome a Presidential veto?"

The fight over Planned Parenthood was elevated on the national debate stage Wednesday, when GOP presidential candidates like Cruz attacked the organization for its abortion practices.

The Texas senator charged fellow Republicans with "preemptively surrendering" to Obama in their opposition to a federal shutdown.

"You know, Obama's committed to his principles," Cruz said late Wednesday. "Republicans surrender. We need to stop surrendering and start standing for our principles."
Here's some questions for Sen. Ayotte (and Gov. Kasich, as well as others):

Where's your vision in political maneuvering? Where's your fight at all political cost for a first liberty, Life? Neither are practiced in maintaining a filibuster rule that was previously suspended and used against you when Reid controlled the Senate. And anyone can cast a 'yay' in a choreographed show vote set to fail.

Why the HELL fear a government shutdown when it produced historic WINS for Republicans the last time, despite the Democratic bought-and-paid-for media? This one illustrates RINOs incessant attachment to minority status in Washington. Any bit of power over principle. And how many times must the American people fall for this charade of a minute percent of the government actually 'shutting down'? All cylinders still fire; the radio's just turned off for a few days!

Where's your sense of principle, and why do you maintain a party that can't seem to find it? Why side with Democrats and Obama over Sen. Cruz?! Because far too many Republicans have detached themselves from principle, conservatism and the Constitution. In other words, they stand for nothing but themselves...much like Democrats. They truly are the Washington cartel. And that's what Cruz is out to dismantle. Shut it down!
