Jon Kyl Deletes His Lie From Congressional Record

It’s as if it never happened. The outrageous claim by Republican Senator Jon Kyl last Friday, that 90% of what Planned Parenthood does is providing abortions, has magically disappeared from the Congressional records. Apparently, senators can review their statements on the floor of the senate after making them, and make changes for the record.

Last Friday, in an effort to defund Planned Parenthood, the Arizona Republican senator stood on the floor of the United States Senate and lied, claiming, “if you want an abortion you go to Planned Parenthood and that’s well over 90% of what Planned Parenthood does.” Of course, the truth of the matter is, about 3% of Planned Parenthood services are abortions. The organization also offers a wide range of health care to women, including cancer screenings.

But after waving the magic wand over the official congressional record, his statement now says, “if you want an abortion you go to Planned Parenthood and that is what Planned Parenthood does.”

Let’s see him wave his wand over Youtube and change the video below.

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!

  • Not only Republicans take advantage of this revision capability. Both sides have used this over the years to clean up mistakes as well as lies.
    Frankly, as far as I’m concerned, corruption is equally distributed between Democrats and Republicans…

    Internet…Once you post it, that shit stays there forever.

  • And yet all he did was delete the phrase “well over 90 percent of,” which means the record *now* tells us that abortion is “what Planned Parenthood does.” So his corrected statement is even *less* accurate. How does an adult accomplish that?

  • He keeps wanting to get re-elected? Wong. Kyl has said he will not seek re-election for the next term. Jon Kyl is just naturally stupid: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/14101215/highlight/165831

    The clown was just trying to get attention. He knows what will continue to get him reelected. This is politics and played this way is an arrogant and ugly game. I am personally of the mind that believes if Planned Parenthood did spend 90% of it’s revenue on abortion that would still be a good thing for I believe no matter what economic situation you are in a mother deserves the right to choose. So the truth that Planned Parenthood spends only 3% on abortions is a terrific number, because it must serve as a great resource to prevent pregnancy in the first place.

    No surprise here. Republicans have repeatedly demonstrated their mastery at rewriting history.
