House Speaker Paul Ryan has lost a lot of trust with conservatives over the past few years.
That trust was further eroded last week when his Obamacare replacement bill failed to even make it to the House floor.
Now, he is giving conservatives even more reason to be skeptical.
Looks like he is backing away from promises to defund Planned Parenthood.
So much for defunding Planned Parenthood.
From Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s press conference happening now:
Planned Parenthood carries out 300,000 abortions per year, has failed to report child rape many times in many states, was the subject of some gruesome undercover videos that exposed callousness on an unspeakable level, and has misled the public many times about the services they provide.
At the very least, you would think that would be reason enough to stop giving them $500 million a year in taxpayer funds.
