Senate Bill Would Fund Women’s Health, Not Scandal-Plagued Planned Parenthood

“Instead of subsidizing a political group, this bill would ensure funds continue to flow to community health centers and hospitals that provide more comprehensive health services — and have many more facilities nationwide.’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding legislation that would redirect federal Planned Parenthood funds:

“The revelations we’ve seen from Planned Parenthood are deeply disturbing.

 “They raise real fundamental questions about what kind of society we want to be.

“I thank Senators Ernst, Paul, Lankford, and a number of others for accepting my invitation to lead the effort on the Senate’s response. The legislation they worked to develop is all about restoring America’s commitment to care and compassion.

“It would fund women’s health, not Planned Parenthood.

“And we’ll take a vote to advance it tonight.

“Instead of subsidizing a political group, this bill would protect federal funding for health services for women.

“Instead of subsidizing a political group, this bill would ensure funds continue to flow to community health centers and hospitals that provide more comprehensive health services — and have many more facilities nationwide.

“And instead of subsidizing a political group, this bill would help women receive health services like screenings, prenatal and postnatal care, well-child care, diagnostic laboratory and radiology services, immunizations, and other care they need.

“That’s a true commitment to women’s health.

“That’s real compassion.

“I know Democrats have relied on Planned Parenthood as an ally recently.

“But they must be moved by the horrifying images we’ve seen.

“They must be shocked by the utter lack of compassion that’s been on display.

“They must care about women’s health as least as much as they care about some scandal-plagued political organization.

“That’s why, tonight, I’m asking them to truly reflect on what’s important.

“I’m asking them not to block this funding for women’s health, just to protect some political group mired in scandal.

“Women deserve better. Our country deserves better.”

Finalized EPA Regs: Probably Illegal, Would Hurt the Middle Class and Won’t Meaningfully Affect Global Climate

‘[The greenhouse gas emissions regulations are] projected to cost billions. They threaten to ship good Middle-Class jobs overseas. They’ll likely make it harder to maintain reliable sources of energy to meet demand. They’ll also likely result in higher energy bills for those who can least afford them, potentially raising electricity rates by double digits for the people I represent.’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding President Obama’s so-called Clean Power Plan:

“In just a few minutes, President Obama will deliver another blow to the economy and to the Middle-Class.

“He’ll unveil regressive regulations that are set to harm struggling workers and families.

“They’re projected to cost billions.

“They threaten to ship good Middle-Class jobs overseas.

“They’ll likely make it harder to maintain reliable sources of energy to meet demand.

“They’ll also likely result in higher energy bills for those who can least afford them, potentially raising electricity rates by double digits for the people I represent.

“All this, for what?

“Not only will these massive regulations fail to meaningfully affect the global climate, but they could actually end up harming the environment by outsourcing energy production to countries with poor environmental records like India and China.

“They may also be illegal.

That’s why I wrote to governors earlier this year, suggesting they take a responsible wait-and-see approach and allow the courts to weigh in before subjecting their citizens to such unnecessary pain.

“The Supreme Court’s rebuke to the White House in June on another environmental regulation underlines the wisdom of this approach.

“Even though that mercury regulation was ultimately tossed out, most of its damage had already been done.

“It reminded governors that it would be reckless not to take a wait-and-see approach this time.

“Several governors have already decided they won’t allow the Administration to rush them into adopting these regulations. I expect more to follow.

I was recently able to place language in the Senate Interior Appropriations bill that would prohibit the Administration from arbitrarily imposing its will on states that take this responsible approach.

“Senator Capito also has a bill that would prohibit the regulations from moving forward until the courts have ruled on their legality.

“These aren’t the only legislative options Congress can consider. We can pursue other avenues, like CRA resolutions and further appropriations riders, as these regulations are published and as they wind their way through the courts.

“Here’s the bottom line about today’s announcement.

“If the Obama Administration were actually serious about advancing renewable energy, then it would follow the example of what leaders like Senator Murkowski have been achieving in the Energy Committee. She’s showing how we can make big strides on energy diversification, that we can do it in a bipartisan way, and that we don’t have to punish the Middle Class to do it.

“But this White House seems to want good politics, not good policy.

“Officials in this Administration have said they want to make electricity rates ‘skyrocket,’ and that they want to ‘make examples out of people’ who get in their way.

“And they’re tired of having to work with the Congress the people elected.

“That’s why the Administration is now trying to impose these deeply regressive regulations — regulations that may be illegal, that won’t meaningfully impact the global environment, and that are likely to harm middle-and-lower class Americans most — by executive fiat.

“It represents a triumph of blind ideology over sound policy and honest compassion.

“And in Kentucky, these regulations would likely mean fewer jobs, shuttered power plants, and higher electricity costs for families and businesses. I will not sit by while the White House takes aims at the lifeblood of our state’s economy.

I’m going to keep doing everything I can to fight them.”
