Senate Leader: Not Enough Votes to Defund Planned Parenthood
"The president's made it very clear he's not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood," McConnell said. "So that's another issue that awaits a new president, hopefully with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood."
The majority leader's remarks drew an angry response from conservative Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., who has been gathering signatures on a letter from House lawmakers who say they'll oppose spending legislation this fall if it includes any funds for Planned Parenthood."
