Skip to comments.Kasich Channels McConnell on Planned Parenthood: GOP Doesn’t Need Unpopular Government Shutdown
Posted on 09/13/2015 5:42:02 PM PDT by markomalley
Republican presidential contender John Kasich is taking a page from Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnells playbook, warning GOP conservatives against demanding Planned Parenthoods federal funding be eliminated from the must-pass temporary spending bill that would keep the government open.
Echoing McConnells words, the Ohio Governor said in New Hampshire Saturday and then argued on Fox News Sunday, that President Obama would veto any spending bill that transfers funds from Planned Parenthood to womens healthcare facilities that do not perform abortions. Kasich warns that could make Republicans vulnerable if the government subsequently shuts down.
I think there are other ways for Congress to try to deal with this, Kasich said. And they need to be more creative in regard to Planned Parenthood. But when you shut the government down, people dont like it. And you shouldnt shut it down unless you have a great chance of success.

Translation: Give them even more government cash to distribute to the baby-killer Democrats.
So I guess the GOP DOES NEED the wildly popular PPs butchering American babies and selling their body parts to the highest bidder? This is such a dumb thing to say.
After the last government shutdown, the GOP gained 9 Senate seats and the most House members since 1928.
What would happen if they did something the People LIKED?
Obamacare funding: “GOP Doesnt Need Unpopular Government Shutdown”
Amnesty funding: “GOP Doesnt Need Unpopular Government Shutdown”
Abortion funding: “GOP Doesnt Need Unpopular Government Shutdown”
Someone remind us why we elected a GOP House and GOP Senate????
The precise type of pandering CRAP we can anticipate if this damn RINO or any of his clones get nominated or elected. The libs compromise on NOTHING. Why should we????
Maybe he wanted to be first, but Rick Perry beat him to it.
Kasich, McConnell, Boehner ALL need to GO, and GO NOW!!!
Thrown these bums out.
Trump said shut it down over PP. Guess he is more conservative than Kasich. Just because 75% of America is against baby harvesting is no reason to fight.
Pray America is waking
Yeah, just let us stupid taxpayers continue to pay for the deliberate, cold, calculated, 1st degree murder of unborn children. That’s why we pay taxes, right?
Why would anyone vote for this putz? He’s offering more of the same.
If I was one of those ‘no matter what’ types I would probably be searching for some new material right about now because if the last week alone is an indication, their same old excuses are gonna be a harder sell this trip.
I’d bet money that twit is on the ticket as VP.
I’ll be the first to say, thanks to Donald, this election is like no other. But the GOPe have been winning for decades now. Its always theirs to lose. Here’s hoping they lose.
“Hothead” John Kasich...all the RINO of a Bush, without any of the self-deprecation.
Hey Kasich, You can talk plainer than that. Why don’t you just say what you mean: “We’re not doing anything to updet the sodomites or the ghouls. Tough schitsky for the murdered unborn babies!”
BabiesLivesMatter? Maybe not with Kasich and McConnell.
These guys are making it easy for the Donald...
It is unbelievably pathetic that these morons are incapable of making the case to the American people that it is Obama who would be shutting down the government.
This is where a Trump (who is not intimidated by the media) would shine.
