House Speaker John Boehner (R) and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D) united Wednesday evening to fund the government after September 30 by passing a continuing resolution (CR) that includes the funding of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, and Obamacare. Republicans needed significant support from Democrats to pass the CR, 319-108. However, 53 Republicans and 55 Democrats voted against it, reports CNSNews.com. The bill will fund the government through December 11th during the “lame duck” session of Congress. Among the Republican members of the House who voted against the resolution were Reps. Louis Gohmert (TX); Michele Bachmann (MN); Trey Gowdy (SC); John Fleming (LA); Jim Jordan (OH); Scott Garrett (NJ); Jim Bridenstine (OK); and Dana Rohrabacher (CA). According to Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report, it performed 327,166 abortions in fiscal year 2011-2012 and received $540.6 million in funding from local, state, and federal governments in the year that ended on June 30, 2013. Additionally, the GAO has just released a new report that states more than 1,000 Obamacare exchange plans include taxpayer-funded abortion coverage, a fact that confirms the provision in Obama’s health reform
