In the comments on another post someone said Tim Johnson was voting more and more liberal — so here’s another log for that fire…..Johnson vowing a filibuster to save federal money for abortion.
From the Planned Parenthood Action Fund website for Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota
Senator Tim Johnson has been a long time supporter of women?s rights and health care both in South Dakota and the rest of the country. His latest action pledging support to the women and families of South Dakota is a vow to oppose ?any bipartisan spending bill that includes an amendment to strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood.? Senator Johnson, along with Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and thirty nine additional senators signed a letter promising to filibuster. According to The Hill, ?It?s just large enough to sustain a filibuster to block any spending bill that cuts Planned Parenthood funding from passing the upper chamber.?
Notice that even Planned Parenthood calls it bipartisan….but that’s not good enough for them or Sen. Johnson.
