On the Hugh Hewitt Show on Wednesday, Bobby Jindal got straight to the point on the upcoming Planned Parenthood funding fight.

You can read Jindal’s response below, courtesy of HughHewitt.com:

At least Pelosi, Reid and Obama are fighting for their socialist beliefs. They’re fighting for what they believe in. They did everything they could to cram Obamacare down our throats. I don’t want our side to break the Constitution and break the law, but I want our side to fight, Hugh, and I think there’s a lot of frustration that our guys give up before it starts. Now they don’t — Mitch McConnell recently said we can’t even defund Planned Parenthood. After those barbaric videos, if we can’t get that done, what is the point of the Republican Party? We defunded them in Louisiana. Obama is suing us. They’re joining the lawsuit with Planned Parenthood. We’re going to keep fighting. We’re not going to let them intimidate us. That’s the kind of backbone we’re looking for in D.C.

Great question, Governor…
