House Passes Partisan Appropriations Legislation
Recently, the House passed H.R. 7617, a bill that funds six of the twelve annual appropriations bills for the fiscal year beginning October 1st. This legislation is yet another partisan exercise from Nancy Pelosi and her socialist Democrats that has no chance of becoming law. This proposal violates last year’s bipartisan spending agreement by hundreds of billions of dollars and contains poison pills that jeopardize our nation’s safety and security, defund our police, and reverse pro-life and religious freedom protections.
Among other provisions, the bill prevents the United States from exercising the right to defend ourselves and our allies by restricting military action against foreign enemies like Iran and China. The bill also provides for money to go to Planned Parenthood clinics and forces faith-based providers to discuss abortions, even if they have personal objections. It also eliminates several long-standing, bipartisan Second Amendment protections.
