Obama: ‘Ridiculous’ To Shut Down Gov’t Over Planned Parenthood

By Eric Scheiner | October 26, 2015 | 3:02pm EDT

President Barack Obama says, “We should not even be thinking about shutting down our government over Planned Parenthood.”

The president made the comments Friday at the Democratic National Committee Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C.

“As Democrats our economic plans would actually grow the economy for everybody, not just for folks at the top,” President Obama said.

“We should not even be thinking about something as ridiculous as shutting down our government over Planned Parenthood – we should be talking about opening up new opportunities.”

The House voted on Friday to approve a budget reconciliation bill that would repeal parts of ObamaCare and halt federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
