Shocker: Obama Vetoes Bill That Repeals Obamacare, Defunds Planned Parenthood
As expected, President Obama has vetoed Congress' reconciliation bill that repeals Obamacare and defunds the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

"This legislation would not only repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act, but would reverse the significant progress we have made in improving health care in America," the president wrote members of the House in a letter.

Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has also engaged in shameful fearmongering when it comes to defending Obamacare. At a town hall last week, she predicted that if a Republican wins the White House in November, it would be the end of health care as we know it.

In regards to the tax dollars Planned Parenthood will continue to receive, conservative groups like The Family Research Council have responded by telling the president he will be henceforth to blame for funding an organization that treats unborn babies as commodities:

"Mr. President, by vetoing this bill, you alone bear the moral responsibility for sending taxpayer dollars to a group that has engaged in the selling of baby body parts.

"The American people, through Congress, have spoken loud and clear about this moral injustice. But, unfortunately, yet again, this message has fallen on President Obama's deaf ears. We urge Congress to override the veto.

While this result was expected by, well, everyone, Congress still proved that they can get their conservative agenda done. Should a Republican win in November, they could very well make the legislation reality.
