(CNSNews.com) - Former Arkansas Gov. and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” on Sunday said that the GOP agenda is not being blocked by Democrats but rather “wuss Republicans who will not stand up to the pressure, and who will not do what they promised to do.”

Huckabee also said that Republicans now have a good reason to defund Planned Parenthood, because it was started by “one of the most outrageous racists of all time - Margaret Sanger.”

 



Huckabee was asked by host Maria Bartiromo about whether the Democrats are messing up the agenda by planning to add amendments to each appropriations bill to include money to take down Confederate statues. 

“If they don’t get these things, it’s not because of the Democrats. It’s because of a bunch of wuss Republicans who will not stand up to the pressure and who will not do what they promised to do,” Huckabee responded.

“The reason we don’t have a repeal and replace is because the Republicans blew it, and with all due respect to Mitch McConnell, when he says 'well the president had excessive expectations,' no he didn’t. He just expected that if you had a majority in the House and the Senate and the White House, as has been promised for 7 1/2 years by the Republicans, give us all of these things and we’ll get this done, and then they can’t get it done,” he said.

“Look, the reason we don’t have tax reform is because of Republicans. The reason we haven’t defunded Planned Parenthood is because of Republicans, and here’s one that now Republicans have a good reason to do,” Huckabee said.

“They can say we’ve got to defund Planned Parenthood because it was started by one of the most outrageous racists of all time - Margaret Sanger, who was an avowed racist and who believed in eugenics and said the most horrible things about African American people. That’s a good reason to do it. Why don’t they do that?” he asked.
