Docs Reveal Biden Medicare Nominee Received Thousands of Dollars from Planned Parenthood

Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, President Biden's nominee for Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), accepted thousands of dollars from Planned Parenthood. This was revealed by the Public Financial Disclosure Report she was required to submit during the confirmation process.

The report reveals that she received an undisclosed amount greater than $5,000 from Planned Parenthood Federation of America. She described the work she did for Planned Parenthood as follows: “Summarized Democrat candidates’ position on women’s health and facilitated discussion on their priorities as a primary care provider (client of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP).”

The American Accountability Foundation summarized this description as “Washington-speak for using her position at her law firm to coordinate strategy with Democratic politicians on Planned Parenthood between the Biden campaign and elected officials in Washington. It is basically a lobbying position without having to be disclosed as a lobbyist.”

Brooks-LaSure's nomination is currently on hold for unrelated reasons. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said that he is holding off on the confirmation process in protest of the Biden administration’s refusal to extend a Medicaid waiver Texas relied on to reimburse hospitals for treating uninsured patients.
