For two weeks now, the NRA has been dragged through the mud by the media. Left wing activists have insisted that the NRA has too much political power. Yet at the same time that this is happening, Planned Parenthood is getting ready to drop millions of dollars on the 2018 midterms. Who has too much political influence again?
CNN reports this without a hint of irony:
First on CNN: Planned Parenthood to target 8 states, spend $20 million as part of midterm battle plan
Planned Parenthood’s political arm is targeting eight states with competitive Senate and governor’s races in its largest-ever midterm election campaign.
The offensive is set to cost $20 million, an initial mark that the organization’s officials say is all but certain to be exceeded.
The investment from Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Votes, the organization’s political entities, makes it one of the biggest outside spending forces in Democratic politics headed into a cycle in which the party sees a rare opportunity to pick off GOP seats across the map.
It’s part of Planned Parenthood’s effort to sustain the momentum of the Women’s March the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration and turn women’s health care and reproductive rights into issues that drive voters to the ballot box to oppose Trump and GOP candidates.
Planned Parenthood gets millions of dollars taken from taxpayers, then turns around and spends millions trying to elect Democrats who will give them more money. That’s a pretty good racket.
