Hill on the Hill blames Hill but not Republicans

On "Hill on the Hill", Sam Wamsley provides a useful description of Planned Parenthood's use of Title X funds for "sex education". That said, I'm not sure about the "radical agenda" of Baron Hill or Wamsley's "conclusion". What Hill did is well within the Congressional norm for both Republicans and Democrats...

Baron Hill has unleashed a monster set upon destroying the innocence of our children. Because of Hill's actions Planned Parenthood can continue to maneuver in their attempt to remove and destroy faith, morality, Hoosier family values, marriage, and innocence. Ironically, these are the very same values Hill swore to Hoosiers he would uphold. In his campaign TV ads and literature Hill promised he was a man of small town values, ready to defend mom and pop; when in reality he is the very opposite. Please let Baron Hill know that we will not stand for him selling our values down the river and that it won't be tolerated.

Wamsley's passionate conclusion is matched only by the strange omission of blame for the Republicans who voted for the same funding when they controlled the House from 1994-2006. Likewise, Mike Sodrel voted for Planned Parenthood funding in both 2005 and 2006. The good news: since Wamsley is so offended by this policy, it looks like I can look forward to his support in 2008.
