The Donald: Chop-Shop Eliminator??

At least in the view found here, The Donald may effect the end of federal taxpayer gifts to the Chop Shop.  (He also slapped Ron Johnson like a pinata.  Ron deserves it, too.)

...On Monday evening, GOP front-runner Trump officially blessed a strategy that would include a rider that defunds Planned Parenthood in a government funding bill. But Democrats have said they would oppose any bill that includes such a defunding rider, which would imperil funding legislation that Congress must pass by Sept. 30.

Asked directly by conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt if it’s worth shutting down the federal government to strip Planned Parenthood’s $528 million in government funding, Trump replied: “I would.” And Trump blamed Cruz’s colleagues for abandoning him during the fight to defund Obamacare two years ago.
“If the Republicans stuck together you could have done it with Obamacare also, but the Republicans decided not to stick together and they left a few people out there like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%,” Trump said. “If they had stuck together they wold have won that battle. I think you have to in this case [on Planned Parenthood] also, yes.”... Politico quoted at RedState

Well.  When Mike Lee and/or Ted Cruz try (again) to defund the Chop Shop by amending the budget bill, will Rubio, Paul, and Graham man up?

How about Ron Johnson?
