Ohio GOP's Election Lesson: We Should Go After Planned Parenthood Again!...

Source: Mother Jones

The GOP revives an effort to take away family planning and education funds from the state's 32 Planned Parenthood providers.



Democrats did well in Ohio on November 6, with President Obama claiming the state's electoral college votes and Sherrod Brown pulling out a tight race for his Senate seat. But the state's Republicans weren't going to let defeat in the statewide races slow them down. Instead, they immediately returned to their pre-election agenda: targeting Planned Parenthood.

On Nov. 14, House Republicans voted in a lame-duck session to advance House Bill 298, which would likely strip public funding for Planned Parenthood in the state.

The Ohio House Health and Aging Committee voted to approve the bill on a party-line vote. The measure will reprioritize how state and federal family planning funds are administered, bumping Planned Parenthood providers to the bottom rung of eligibility. The bill states that priority for the funds should go to state, county, or local government entities. If "all eligible public entities have been fully funded," then some of the money can go to private groups, but those are also ranked to put Planned Parenthood providers dead last. This would replace the current competitive grant process...

2. That attitude is fine when it comes to future elections but...

...these guys should know when they're beaten & stop pushing the agendas that lost them the last election. Don't you think?

4. No. Because then they lose the next one, and the next one and the next one

until these social conservatives are driven completely out of power.

6. I see your point but...

...they may just catch the public off-guard & get away with some of their shenanigans.

10. In the short run, they might.

But that will just reinforce the view that they are monsters in time for the next election.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not excited to live in "interesting times". But a supposedly "sensible" Republican party would get about 70% of what they want. I want them remaining bat-shit crazy so they manage to pull off maybe 10% that is then quickly repealed.

14. They have gerrymandered themselves supermajorities

Ohio has done some of the most blatant gerrymandering in the country. They know their legislative majorities are safe until 2020. They will be as hateful and obnoxious as ever because as far as they can see, they will have control.

15. We Ohioans cast more votes for Dem legislators than for GOPs

At least in the federal elections. The gops got 14/18 seats. I am sure you know that.
