MSNBC host Cenk Uygur speaks with former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and Newsweek's Jonathan Alter about Republican Governors attempting to seriously cut funding for education in their states despite the fact that only 3% of Americans support it according to a recent poll.

In an exclusive interview, Democracy Now! talks with Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which provides family planning, contraception and abortion services at more than 800 clinics and health centers across the U.S. serving more than 3 million patients a year. No federal dollars are used to fund its abortion services.

"The most ridiculous part, for those proposing these bills, is that Planned Parenthood does more to prevent unintended pregnancy and the need for abortion than any other organization in America," Richards says. "This is not what the American people voted for."

Uploaded by SenateDemocrats on May 3, 2011

Democrats have been trying to pass legislation to create new high-paying small business jobs through the reauthorization of the Small Business Innovation Research program. This bill would help America's 30 million small businesses invest in technology research to grow their businesses and create jobs. But Republicans, who have made job creation their last priority, refuse to allow this bill to pass the Senate.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
