The House GOP's Crusade Against Reproductive Rights

In September, Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL), chairman of the House Energy and Commerce's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, initiated an investigation of Planned Parenthood's financial records looking for misappropriated federal funds and requesting paperwork going back over 13 years. This Republican vendetta against Planned Parenthood is part of a larger fight in which Republicans are trying to prevent women from being in control of their reproductive health. To that end, House Republicans introduced a multitude of bills and amendments since January that would chip away at women's reproductive rights by eliminating Title X funding, defunding Planned Parenthood, imposing harsh restrictions on funding for abortions, replacing sexual education programs with abstinence-only programs, redefining rape to limit abortion exceptions, reinstating the global gag rule, supporting crisis pregnancy centers and imposing harsher parental notification laws.

Fact Checking The Sunday Shows - July 24, 2011

This week's Sunday shows were largely about the struggle to reach an agreement to raise the debt ceiling. On Fox News Sunday, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) blamed Obama's policies for "out of control" spending without noting that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the recession, and the Bush tax cuts are the primary drivers of debt and deficits. He also touted the deeply problematic balanced budget amendment. On CNN, Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) claimed that the House-passed GOP budget eliminated all corporate loopholes when it really secures tax breaks for big oil, all while necessitating a middle-class tax hike. Price also minimized the very serious effects of the checks that won't get paid out if the debt limit isn't raised by August 2nd. Later, Tim Pawlenty falsely claimed that President Obama is responsible for tripling deficits within his term. On Face the Nation, Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) wrongly said that spending alone is the problem driving deficits. Finally, on Meet the Press, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) justified the GOP's efforts to obstruct debt ceiling negotiations by distorting credit rating agencies' warnings, and then blamed Democrats for the GOP-driven politicization of a Federal Aviation Administration funding bill.

Rep. Price Cites "Little Trust" Of IPAB — Which Is More Trusted Than Congress Or Private Insurance Companies

In yesterday's House Budget Committee hearing on the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) started his questioning of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius by citing "little trust" among the public for the federal government. However, recent polling shows that the public would trust "an independent panel of full-time experts appointed by the president" — like IPAB — far more than Congress to make decisions about reducing Medicare spending. In fact, the poll also shows that the public trusts Congress about the same as it trusts profit-seeking private insurance companies. That's not too good for Rep. Price.

Rep. Price Continues To Mislead The Public On Spending And Taxation

Yesterday, Fox Business hosted Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) to discuss the current situation over the debt ceiling. Rep. Price blamed the nation's ails on the growth in government spending, claiming that taxing "too little" has not been a major driver of our current deficit projections and that the only way to balance the budget is by decreasing spending — without any revenue increases. As a solution for the future, Rep. Price advocated for a problematic balanced budget amendment, which would actually make it harder to balance the budget and could be unenforceable. Finally, Rep. Price regurgitated a popular Republican talking point — that the Obama administration promised unemployment would not go over 8 percent — even though that's a serious misrepresentation of the truth.
