President Obama on Friday lifted a ban on federal funding for international groups that promote or perform abortions, reversing a policy of his predecessor, George W. Bush.
Obama signed the executive order one day after the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in all 50 states.
Hmm. So let me get this straight. The US economy is teetering, and Barry wants to take MY TAX DOLLARS and send them to foreign countries to finance
I don't agree with using my tax dollars to fund abortion in my own country. But let's leave the ethical arguments against abortion out of the argument for right now. How can Barry possibly justify sending millions of dollars OUT of our country to fund a procedure that does not enhance the global economy...and in fact is a long-term detriment to it?
From a purely fiscal perspective, that is just stupidity.
And so is this:
QUESTION: Mr. Boehner, you had three strong words in reaction to the Democratic House proposal. What was your message to President Obama?
HOUSE REPUBLICAN LEADER JOHN BOEHNER (R-OH): You know, I’m concerned about the size of the package and I’m concerned about some of the spending that’s in there. How you can spend hundreds of millions of dollars on contraceptives – how does that stimulate the economy?
You know what Boehner should have done? He should have walked out to the presser with a case of condoms and abortion leaflets and started handing them out without saying a word. And then he could have turned to the cameras and said, "I just want America to know what our President will be blowing millions of your hard-earned tax dollars on."
And just an aside...I wonder if Baby-Killer Barry has been to church yet?
