The history on that is atrocious!

But of course, this isn't about waste.
This is about how the Repubs can disguise their witch hunt under another banner, and attack a politically convenient target.
Not an economically convenient one.
If one day the Repubs convened an investigation to find out about the taxes of the upper crust and the loopholes involved, THAT would be something.
There's no doubt that this is political gamesmanship, but to attack it without letting the issue stand on it's own (without the BS that the two of you are trying) is dishonest. If PPA is using this money to fund or provide them with an opportunity to shift funding to suport abortions, then they are in violation of the law and as such should be dealt with accordingly. I agree that there are bigger fish to fry, but that doesn't mean that this issue should be ignored.
