Thank God for Carly Fiorina. With the exception of Ted Cruz the GOP presidential field has been reticent to criticize Republican congressional leadership but the former Hewlett-Packard CEO suggested a change in leadership if McConnell and Boehner fail to defund Planned Parenthood. Speaking in Bedford, New Hampshire Fiorina drew the line. “Mr. Boehner and Mr. McConnell, I know them both, they’re good men, but perhaps they’ve been captured by the status quo.”
She went on to suggest that Congress should pass legislation that instituted a 20 week ban on abortion, defund Planned Parenthood, and secure the border or else. “I think if they would did those three things I would be satisfied that leadership is producing results,” Fiorina said. “And if they can’t produce results then unfortunately leadership should go.”
And if Obama doesn't like it?
“If President Obama is prepared to shut down the government because he cares so much about Planned Parenthood, then let him do that."
