Pat Toomey Wants to “Move On” From Defunding Planned Parenthood

The Republican senator believes the government has bigger issues to deal with. Ya think?

Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey appeared on MSNBC this morning to discuss the impending federal government shutdown. Toomey, a Republican, unexpectedly spoke out against the rider to defund Planned Parenthood.

“I’d like to defund Planned Parenthood, but I understand that Republicans don’t have complete control of the elected government. I think what we should do is cut spending as much as we can, get the policy changes that we can, but move on, because there are other, bigger battles that we are fighting.” [The Hill]
