How Congress Funded Planned Parenthood

People keep asking me how Congress funded Planned Parenthood in the December omnibus spending bill. 

Congress needed to place a rider on the omnibus prohibiting federal funding going to PP under Title X and via Medicaid. 

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has been a recipient of federal dollars under Title X of the Public Health Service Act and via Medicaid reimbursements, among other sources. Last reporting year, Planned Parenthood received $528 million in taxpayer dollars – 41% of its total revenue – a significant portion of which comes from these federal government programs.

Virginia Foxx voted to fund PP when she voted for the omnibus that contained NO rider to prevent the over $500 million from going to Planned Parenthood.
