Democrats knew on Friday that a deal had already been cut the day before concerning the controversial social policy rider to defund Planned Parenthood. They were just playing politics on Friday.
The Hill reported:
House and Senate negotiators had reached a deal on controversial policy riders late Thursday night, according to a GOP leadership source close to the intense talks that resulted in an eleventh-hour deal to avert government shutdown, despite Democrats’ claims to the contrary.
House and Senate Democratic lawmakers spent most of Friday attacking Republicans for holding up a government funding measure over a controversial social policy rider to defund Planned Parenthood, but a source close to the situation said that Democratic attacks were “just a ruse.”
The democrats were just playing games. It figures.
