    LOA

    I don't see a LOA thread, so..... All day today. I'll be out of town. I'll be back tomorrow afternoon. Noted in my hearing thread.
  8. Like with the last question, I believe it will be more beneficial for all involved if I start by answering your second question here, Senator. The President's executive order regarding the rightful repeal of the Mexico City Policy ensures that foreign government, and NGOs, are able to determine their own family planning policies. The Mexico City Policy bans any global health organizations that receive U.S. funds from promotion abortion among reproductive health organizations- The President's executive order does not require them to promote abortion, if they so wish. But President's Trump Mexico City Policy ended up being a global gag rule on how these governments wanted to operate. As for his characterization of President Tillman's executive order, I would like to respectfully disagree with that characterization. The Administration wants to ensure that American taxpayer dollars that go to taxpayer health ensure that priority is given for all reproductive health options- because reproductive health is a crucially important part of women's healthcare. Instead of, like the Mexico City policy, the Administration acting as a limiter on who can promote women's health, this acts as an unifier. Now, when the State Department looks for organizations to help fund who promote healthcare in poorer countries, they don't have to focus so much on one singular issue, and can focus more on evaluating applications for funding on a case by case basis, strictly on the ability of each individual organization to be effective. ((Thank you to Brady for the extension, as well))
  9. The point is well taken. The voting thread has been edited to reflect a motion to suspend and pass. As this is a motion to suspend and pass, it requires a 2/3 vote in favor for passage. Voting is still to be conducted in the thread linked above.
  10. A point of order, Mr. President, if I may: As this particular amendment was not docketed, shouldn't it be treated as a motion to suspend the rules and pass the amendment? I yield.
  11. As there are no specific rules governing the amendment of Senate Rules, the ruling of the Chair is that Senate Rules should be treated as other legislation. As such, the Chair interprets this motion as a motion for cloture. Senators may vote at the link below.
  12. Mr. President, I second the amendment and yield the remainder of my time.
  13. This hearing has been extended by 24 hours, for a total of 72 hours, at the request of the nominee. (OOC: Wilder is going to be out of town tomorrow and requested a 24 hour extension.)

  21. Photo caption: Senator Hawthorne questions Secretary-Designate Marshall Wilder. Hawthorne Takes Aim at Tillman Executive Orders in Secretary of State Confirmation Hearing WASHINGTON, D.C. - During the confirmation hearing of Marshall Wilder, President Christina Tillman's nominee for Secretary of State, U.S. Senator Jackson Hawthorne (R-WV) took aim at recent executive orders signed by President Tillman. These executive orders include an order to rescind President Donald Trump's memorandum withdrawing the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), as well as his memorandum reinstating and expanding the Mexico City Policy first created by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. The Mexico City Policy prohibits taxpayer dollars from funding non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning. Noting that the TPP agreement has faced bipartisan opposition, Senator Hawthorne asked: "So my first question, Mr. Wilder, is why the administration has chosen to begin on the wrong foot? This decision is not only alienating those of us on my side of the aisle who agree with former President Trump that the TPP was a bad deal for American workers and supported his decision to keep us out of it. It's also a slap in the face to members of the President's own party and progressive academics and activists who oppose the TPP. Is it the President's intention to bring the American people together by uniting them in opposition to her trade policy? If so, that's a unique way to heal our divisions, to say the least." Senator Hawthorne later took aim at the President's decision to rescind the Mexico City Policy. "I'd like for you to explain to the many pro-life Americans out there, and in this chamber for that matter, why this administration believes their taxpayer dollars should go to the International Planned Parenthood Federation to promote abortion in the developing world, instead of going to the many NGOs, including faith-based and pro-life NGOs, that are working hard to improve the lives of families and children in the developing world." Full video of the hearing, including Senator Hawthorne's questions and remarks, is available here.
  22. Well, it's worth noting previous assessments of the TPP have found most of its income gains would go to those who are already making $88,000 per year or more. So I think it's important to note while there may be limited economic gains, they won't be for the workers who need them the most. But as you've said, that's a debate we can and will have if the TPP is brought before Congress. Moving on to another issue, I'd like to talk a bit about President Tillman's decision to rescind the Mexico City Policy. For some this is by now considered old hat -- the Mexico City Policy was created by President Reagan, rescinded by President Clinton, reinstated by President Bush, rescinded by President Obama, and reinstated by President Trump. So at this point I suppose, for some, it's become unsurprising to see President Tillman rescind the policy. It's just how we do things in this town, the pundits would say. I'd like to push back on that a bit. Why is this how we do things in this town? I'd like for you to explain to the many pro-life Americans out there, and in this chamber for that matter, why this administration believes their taxpayer dollars should go to the International Planned Parenthood Federation to promote abortion in the developing world, instead of going to the many NGOs, including faith-based and pro-life NGOs, that are working hard to improve the lives of families and children in the developing world. I'd also like for you to outline for us what steps the State Department will take, if any, to ensure our taxpayer dollars aren't helping organizations like the IPPF undermine the sovereign right of foreign governments to determine their own policies in regard to family planning and especially abortion.
