Rep. Fleischmann to Newsmax TV: 'Shocking' That Planned Parenthood Got PPP Loans

(Newsmax TV/"National Report")

By    |   Friday, 22 May 2020 11:29 AM

Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn., told Newsmax TV on Friday that Planned Parenthood affiliates receiving Paycheck Protection Program funding is “shocking” and “unconscionable.”

The Small Business Administration has demanded that at least one local affiliate of Planned Parenthood Federation of America return PPP funding, claiming that the size of the organization makes it ineligible. PPFA argues that the local affiliates are independent organizations who applied for the loans under rules established by the CARES Act and the SBA, according to CNN.

“It's shocking,” Fleischmann told “National Report” on Friday, “and that's really what we need to investigate. I applaud [Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.,] in the Senate for leading senators to inquire of Attorney General [William] Barr how in fact this did happen. This is part of the radical left agenda. I've said this for years, that we, as Republicans and conservatives, try to play by the rules. The radical left, with their pro-abortion agenda, plays to win, and this is unconscionable, this is wrong, this is an abuse.”

He added, “eighty million dollars going out, and I want your listeners to get this clear, very clearly, the Hyde Amendment protections were supposed to apply so that no federal dollars throughout this coronavirus situation were to go to perform abortions. The left ignored this, they took advantage of this, and sadly it looks like for the short term that they have won. It's wrong, it's unconscionable.”
