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.

Rep. Foxx Lies About Taxes To Attack Democrats

Earlier today, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) took to the floor of the House to criticize Democrats over taxes, claiming that Americans have not received "any tax cuts in the past four years" and lamenting the imposition of "more than $680 billion in tax increases" on the American people. However, President Obama and congressional Democrats have cut taxes for 95 percent of working families, and many of the supposed tax increases that Congress has enacted actually eliminated corporate tax loopholes. Foxx also disingenuously raised the specter of "the largest tax increase in the history of the country" while ignoring elements of Obama's proposal to extend pieces of the Bush tax cuts.
