Put down your rocks. Look, what I’m saying here is this…let’s look at the word “fault.” As defined it means, “responsibility for wrongdoing or failure <the accident was the driver’s fault>” There’s plenty more to that definition, but we can stop here. Just key in on the “failure” part.
If by “fault” the Libs are saying it’s due to the Republican’s “failure” that there will be a government shutdown, I say we should own it!
We should own the fact that we are willing to look at over 10 videos of babies who are still moving, yet being dissected by a group who says they don’t do such things. We should own the fact that we are willing to look at those videos showing babies born at nearly full term after a botched abortion and then being killed in such a fashion as to be able to sell the body parts to “research labs.” We should own the fact that we are willing to stick up for the unborn. We should own the fact that we are willing to risk losing our precious legislative seats to stick up for those who can’t defend themselves.
Because even after all the videos and proof that Planned Parenthood is not playing by the rules, The Dems still refuse to even look into it. I don’t blame them, because if they discover something is wrong and take action, just think of all the votes they stand to lose!
Mr. Obama has said he won’t accept a bill that includes defunding Planned Parenthood because it will hurt women. Curious. I don’t see how.
Defunding Planned Parenthood (PP) would cut 500 million tax dollars. No matter what PP tells you, some of that money is used for abortions. It doesn’t matter how much, because we’ve been promised that “0” dollars will be used for abortion. It falls in line with that whole “if you want to keep your doctor you can…” Never mind!
The part I am really perplexed about is that Obamacare was supposed to provide these services and cover ALL those Americans who couldn’t get coverage independently or afford coverage from work.
So, if it covers women for mammograms and reproductive health and women’s issues and so on and so on… then WHY do we need Planned Parenthood?
There are hospitals and clinics ALL over the U.S. and specifically in the inner cities where MANY of PP services are offered. So… when The Dems say look at all the services women won’t receive if we defund PP, are they saying Obamacare has failed?
It has cost over $2 billion to implement Obamacare websites that don’t work well, and some not at all. Close to $1 billion in advertising Obamacare. After we get past all the game-playing, the original number of $900 billion to implement over 10 years will now be closer to $2.4 billion and rising
The 42 million uninsured people who would now be (or should have been) insured under Obamacare is more like 6 million. The REAL number, because you can’t SAY you have 19 million new sign ups when 7 million, who were slated to move to Medicare, were forced to sign up online and an additional 6 million lost healthcare benefits (because their plan that they liked but their doctor, who they liked, was deemed “inadequate” by the government) and had to sign up online.
So is the real reason why “El Presidente” is fighting so hard to keep PP in business simply to cover for the millions of women who will no longer be covered under Obamacare!?
If it’s Republicans’ “fault” that we are willing to give the President an excuse to shut down the government over 500 million wasted tax dollars because it’s already covered by Obamacare, then I’m guilty!
