Mitch McConnell had a choice.
McConnell could have forced a vote on an amendment to defund Planned Parenthood. Instead, he did the bidding of well-connected special interests and forced a vote to save the now-defunct Export-Import Bank.
None of us are surprised. He chose to give in to big business and disregard the wishes of the American people. And when another senator tried to force a vote on defunding Planned Parenthood, McConnell pulled out all the stops to block him.
Enough is enough. The American people didn’t give Republicans a majority in the Senate just to have them act like Democrats.
More votes are coming today in the Senate.
