Stick to the facts

Arizona Senator Jon Kyl recently claimed that 90% of Planned Parenthood’s resources were spent on abortions. The actual number is closer to 3%. He later stated that his remarks were “not intended to be factual.” 

Why do you think Planned Parenthood and abortions are dominating the budget discussions when current law prevents any federal money from being used on abortions?

It is obvious that this another avenue to attack Roe V Wade.Its not about the budget and its not about telling the truth.Its about power and lack of power for women.!

When did facts become relevant in GOP politics?This is about Planned Parenthood.

I am not surprised at the lies.I am however surprised that the president stood up for Planned Parenthood. Why this issue when he has acquiesced

(cont,sorry) I am not surprised at the lies.I am however surprised that the president stood up for Planned Parenthood. Why this issue when he has acquiesced on everything else?

The GOP is using every distraction in the world to detract from the fact that there is no way in hell they can get the cuts demanded by the Tea Party

"Not intended to be factual" says it all.He is not even smart enough to say that he misspoke.

We know it's an ignorant, non-factual statement. The issue is, many Americans are so uninformed they will take this "lie" as the truth and nothing but the truth.
Why do we think those radio characters have such a following; Rush, Hannity, O'Reilly, Trump. Palin, Bachmann...

Maybe Kyl doesn't know that abortions are legal and a WOMAN'S CHOICE!

Kyl knows that his constituents will believe these lies.Just like the lie that Donald Trump is running on.Maybe you can fool all of the people all of the time.

Where there is smoke ,there is fire.How do we know that our money is not being used for abortions?

@Trudy,, Abortions are legal, however using government funds for it is not. Not too much different than Jessie Jackson Jr, saying that the Ipad was going to kill jobs in America (after he bought one!), or Nancy Pelosi saying we have to pass a bill before we find out what’s in it. To think that only the GOP does this is to sit idly by with your head in the sand.

U R not serious are you.This has to be a toungue in cheek question.I cannot keep up with the lies.Somehow they think if Planned Parenthood was shut down,abortions would be no more.

I pray that abortions will be no more. Frankly speaking, i loathe the idea of any money being used to terminate a human life. And yes, life begins in the womb at the moment of conception.
If the silly women don't want to get pregnant then they should not participate in the raw act.
