Both Sides of Paul Ryan's Mouth

OK, so the Speaker of the House spoke at the March for Life.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told attendees Friday at the 45th Annual March for Life that House Republicans are striving to make their time in Congress a March for Life itself.

He listed a number of pro-life legislative achievements, including the passage of the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act just minutes before the march began on Friday.   ..."We’re making a lot of progress. In the House, we passed legislation to defund Planned Parenthood,” Ryan said.

Well, yah, except for the CR you passed which DOES FUND Planned Parenthood, Paul.

The continuing resolution that the House of Representatives passed last night and sent to the Senate extends government funding—set to expire today—until February 16, while also extending the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for six years.

But it does nothing to follow-up on President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to defund Planned Parenthood so long as Planned Parenthood performs abortions.

“It makes no changes to that program,” a spokesperson for the House Appropriations Committee told when asked if the bill would defund Planned Parenthood in any way....

Such a nice-looking young man for being a bold-faced liar, eh?
