House votes to fund government for 3 more weeks without rider to defund Planned Parenthood

The House approved a three-week continuing resolution on Tuesday, according to Roll Call. The stopgap spending measure, which passed 271-158, will keep the government funded through April 8 and would cut $6 billion in spending from the federal budget by the end of this week, if the Senate approves it.

Despite the fact that Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) and others have tried to encourage all GOPers to refuse to approve a spending plan that doesn’t have certain social riders, such as the amendment to defund Planned Parenthood, the bill passed with 55 House Republicans voting against and 85 Democrats voting for it.

Anti-abortion rights group Family Research Council released a statement praising the Republicans who voted against today’s continuing resolution. Of the vote, FRC President Tony Perkins said:

“We thank Representatives Mike Pence, Jim Jordan and their colleagues who refused to vote for a spending bill that continues to use taxpayer dollars to directly pay for abortions in Washington, D.C. and continues to fund scandal-plagued Planned Parenthood. The time to bring our fiscal house in order is now, and ending the federal gravy train for Planned Parenthood and other Left-wing groups is the first step to show that this Congress is serious about doing so.”
