"House Democrats are likely to jettison family planning funds for the low-income from an $825 billion economic stimulus bill, officials said late Monday, following a personal appeal from President Barack Obama at a time the administration is courting Republican critics of the legislation."
The above is from an article now linked on Drudge. Yep. "Total Failure" Pelosi is too stupid even for Obama to stomach. This is hardly a matter of principle with Obama, since he has already authorized taxpayer money to be paid to worldwide organizations promoting abotion. It is, whoever, recognition that "Total Failure" Pelosi's attempt to "earmark" Planned Parenthood as a part of the "stimulus" bill was beyond stupid. See yesterday's entry, about how Pelosi tried to suggest that "family planning" was "good for the economy".
My brother should feel a little--only a little--better. His business is still not favored by the new central planners, as is true of most small businesses. In fact, small businesses are disfavored, since their owners (like my brother) still get the privilege of seeing the taxes they pay go to benefit OTHER businesses. Howvever, my brother can at least be comforted that "family planning" (Planned Parenthood) is not YET deemed more worthy of bailout than he is. Stay tuned. In the Age of Obama, Planned Parenthood is one of the designated winners.
