At last Tuesday's Vista rally Congressman Darrell Issa claimed, "I have voted for funding for Planned Parenthood every time for the last 16 years." So, we fact checked that claim and this is what we found: 2/18/11 Issa voted to defund Planned Parenthood 9/18/15 Issa voted for the Defund Planned Parenthood Act 2/16/17 Issa voted to remove Title X funding In fact, Issa has a 0% rating with Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Here in the 49th, we don't take kindly to politicians that say one thing, and vote another. In #2018 we're going to #Flipthe49th and vote Issa OUT.
