    In the Senate’s first vote after reconvening from August recess yesterday, Senate Democrats once again blocked the bill that would direct federal funds toward Zika-virus treatment and prevention. This is the third time that Democrats have voted against the bill, claiming that Senate Republicans will harm women’s health by excluding Planned Parenthood from the bill’s funding. But as National Review reported early last month, nothing in the bill “attacks” Planned Parenthood or denies women necessary treatment. In reality, the Senate Democrats are refusing to pass the bill until Republicans add an earmark specifically designating a portion of the public-health funding — just one small aspect of the overall funding bill, most of which would focus on vaccine research and mosquito prevention — to Planned Parenthood.

    Democrats being dishonest is nothing new. It's just what they do.
