(WASHINGTON TIMES) Speaker Paul Ryan said the House will use reconciliation in order to defund Planned Parenthood in the Obamacare repeal bill.

“We think reconciliation is the tool, because that gets it in law,” Mr. Ryan said at a press conference Tuesday. “Reconciliation is the way to go.”

Congress could also defund Planned Parenthood through the continuing resolution funding the government, which expires April 28. But Senate Democrats could filibuster the must-pass legislation and shut down the government.
