Why, oh why, is it so hard for Republicans to do the right thing and put up a good fight to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood?
On this issue, and others before it, it seems the GOP leadership has decided that principles and campaign promises must succumb to the “what we believe is politically possible” line of thinking.

Translation: They are loath to even consider any legislation that President Barack Obama threatens to veto or that Senate Democrats threaten to filibuster.
Further translation: Democrats are winning the game of chicken…again.
