Democrats love to rant and rave against the supposed “buying” of American democracy. They rail against the Koch Brothers and rile-up the ignorant masses that constitute their base and never seem to mention the fact that some of the nation’s biggest political donors are Democrats like Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg and George Soros.
Further, these same Democrats who warn of “big money” routinely cash checks from labor unions and even organizations like Planned Parenthood.
In fact, according to a recent report by the Washington Examiner, Planned Parenthood, the butchers who have been embroiled in a scandal involving their gruesome practice of selling baby parts for profit, donated a whopping $5 million to Democrats in 2014.
Don’t worry, though; they also gave money to Republicans… a whopping $13,000 compared to the $5 million enjoyed by Democrats.
As Congress heads into a debate over whether to continue funds to Planned Parenthood, a Washington Examiner analysis shows that Planned Parenthood and affiliates spent almost $5 million dollars in election ads promoting Democratic lawmakers in 2014.
Additionally, Planned Parenthood has contributed $679,596 directly to federal candidates, $676,885 of that to Democrats, in 2014.
Planned Parenthood was in the top 10 percent of nearly 200 outside expenditure groups in 2014, and the analysis shows that the abortion giant spent $0 on ads attacking Democratic candidates.
In the 2014 federal elections, a landslide year for Republicans, Planned Parenthood spent nearly $3 million in ads attacking Republican candidates and an additional $1.8 million in ads promoting Democrats.
The Examiner analyzed election data obtained by Open Secrets from the Federal Elections Committee on March 09, 2015.
The government gave half a billion dollars to Planned Parenthood in the last year on record and, while a growing cadre of House Republicans say they will not pass a spending bill that sends money to the group, Senate Majority Leader called this Friday an “exercise in futility.”
Planned Parenthood provides several services; however, we should be careful to not buy-into the liberal narrative. They are abortion providers and butchers who have been caught red-handed selling chopped-up babies for profit. Period.
The left still pretends that they are a “women’s health” organization dedicated to providing mammograms and the like. It is true that they offer more than abortions, but let’s be clear: the place that changes my oil also sells cans of soda for $1. They aren’t a “soda-selling market;” they are a tire and lube place. Similarly, Planned Parenthood is not a “women’s health” organization; they are an abortion provider and an abortion advocacy organization.
This gruesome organization has been pumping money into the coffers of Democrats and these same Democrats rant and rave about the supposed corrupting influence of money in politics…
…And then they funnel federal dollars to the abortion organization.
Does anyone else see anything wrong with this picture?
