1. House Republicans’ hopes of stripping all federal funding from Planned Parenthood hit a big obstacle Tuesday, and his name is Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass).

    The junior senator from Massachusetts (and one-time Tea Party favorite) said the measure simply “goes too far.” Two other GOP senators, Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), had already voiced their opposition to the House plan. But does having a male Republican vocally support “family planning and health services for women” effectively save Planned Parenthood’s $330 million from the chopping block?

    This is the second super-admirable and feminist Republican action I’ve reblogged in a row. Today will be a good day.

    SCOTT BROWN?! That’s sounds like a Shamylan twist in my eyes. Scott Brown supporting planned parenthood?

    Like the article says, it’d have been a lot nicer if he hadn’t just voted to defund it in the first place.

    Hate to say it, but probably. People will listen more to a man on these issues, because women are just too “biased”. Sad...

    Was worried about ya, Brown. Thought you might get behind this B.S. Glad to see you give a shit about my health, though.
