Barry In Charge: What Economic Crisis? I Want To Force Taxpayers To Pay For Your Abortion

WASHINGTON, President Barack Obama on Friday lifted restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad, reversing a policy of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush. (source)

Leave it to Reuters to minimize the length of time this restriction has been around, as if only an idiot like George Bush could put a restriction on using taxpayer money for abortions.

Of course, it is the Great Ronaldus Magnus who first put the ban in place in 1984, then it was rescinded by Clinton, replaced by Bush, now lifted again by Barry.

Why are we surprised? Like he told us during his campaign, if his daughters up and get pregnant, he doesn't want them being "punished" with a baby.

Can you believe that we already spend $400 million annualy on family planning for other countries? In dire times of economic stress like this, it seems imprudent to use ANY money of our hard-earned paychecks for this endeavor. After all, we're all concerned with population control, but it isn't an imperative that a recession-stricken America has to be the only "control" in the whole mix.
