      What's stupid is in how you're totally wrong on this. The GOP was trying to shut down the government to defund Planned Parenthood. It was not the Democrats threatening to shut it down in order to fund Planned Parenthood. 

    It's the same thing. In 2015, republicans had control of the House and responsibility to write the annual spending bill. It's no different than a person writing their own budget and deciding to not renew Netflix. So in 2015, democrats were willing to shut down the government to force renewal of Netflix (Planned Parenthood) that Congress didn't want funded.

    I keep correcting you.

Nah, when you fundamentally get the facts wrong and then refuse to acknowledge it, you're the one who needs correcting. Did you even read your own links? The Democrats were not threatening a government shutdown to keep PP funding. Republicans were threatening a government shutdown in order to REMOVE PP funding. So your trying to make this analogous to my example of Democrats extorting Republicans over PP is just plain incorrect.
