I started liking King of the Hill way more after I started spending a lot of time in Texas.

“No, no, but look, I can’t conduct diplomacy on an open source.”
You know who should pay for abortions? Women who want abortions.
You know who shouldn’t be forced to pay for other people’s abortions? Everyone else.
Just double-checked the article. He didn’t say anything like this. In fact, the only thing we see is this: “On Friday morning, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said that talks have progressed ‘70 percent of the way on the numbers,’ but said the two sides are still squabbling about Republican riders to the legislation that would change abortion and environmental policy.”
Look, there’s something to be said about the abortion issue becoming a literal wedge in this case, but let’s not put words into the mouths of our leaders.
Usually quotation marks are a good signifier if someone said something. What I was insinuating with the title of this post was that Congressional Democrats are prepared to shut down the federal government because they believe everyone should pay taxes so Planned Parenthood could continue to provide abortions (ignoring the fact that Planned Parenthood wouldn’t go away if federal funds were cut off).
Abortion is a hotly contested subject as it is, but throw in the fact that people who may or may not agree with abortion are being forced to pay for them is something I think everyone can agree on, and by everyone I mean people who claim to be pro-choice but don’t support the choice to not pay for abortions.
I agree, but I think it is also the Republicans covering their asses with their conservative constituents.
And here’s the kicker:
ABORTIONS AREN’T FREE and people getting them have to pay.
“Planned Parenthood does not and cannot use federal funds to pay for its clinics’ abortion services.” -That is the law
“Planned Parenthood Receives Federal Funding, But Those Federal Dollars Must By Law Go Toward Family Planning, Not Abortion Services.” -Washington Post
People who perpetuate this idea that we are “subsidizing” abortions are doing no better at informing others than TV

“A big part of the House Budget Chairman’s plan rests on the assumption that President Barack Obama’s health care law will be repealed.”
“Ryan’s plan has $40 trillion in spending over the next 10 years compared to $34.9 trillion in revenues. Obama would spend $46 trillion in the coming decade while bringing in $38.8 trillion in revenues. So Ryan’s plan would still result in the government spending $5.1 trillion more over the next decade than it brings in, but that’s less than the $7.2 trillion in deficit spending that Obama has proposed.”
To me, if we are going to start talking about big budget cuts then freezes need to be put in place. The government can always say “Hey! Let’s fund this project!” “The military MUST have this! Let’s throw a HUGE grant at Boeing.”
They also need to be able to predict the shit we could get in to in 10 years. Clinton probably never expected Bush to jump into Iraq or be “forced” into Afghanistan.
Either way, Ryan needs to be straight about his plans and not have hidden figures.
