UPDATE via blissandzen, from Steve Benen

But it’s also worth pausing to note that the House GOP spending bill — the one including brutal domestic spending cuts — eliminated every penny of federal funding for Title X and Planned Parenthood, and Murkowski and [Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) just voted in support of the House Republican proposal.

They’re clearly on the correct side of this debate, but that makes their vote in support of H.R. 1 that much harder to defend. The House bill would deny family planning and contraception to Americans who need the aid. Murkowski and Collins knew the legislation would fail, but they voted for it anyway, basically because their party told them to.

    Supporting women’s health should not be a bipartisan issue. Thank you Sen. Lisa Murkowski for supporting women.
