PELOSI SAYS BIRTH CONTROL WILL HELP ECONOMY
Sun Jan 25 2009 22:13:43 ET
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi boldly defended a move to add birth control funding to the new economic "stimulus" package, claiming "contraception will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government."
Pelosi, the mother of 5 children and 6 grandchildren, who once said, "Nothing in my life will ever, ever compare to being a mom," seemed to imply babies are somehow a burden on the treasury.
The revelation came during an exchange Sunday morning on ABC's THIS WEEK.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?
PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So no apologies for that?
PELOSI: No apologies. No. we have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy.
One must control the masses, mustn't one, Princess pelosi?
Naturally, President bumper sticker has to add his two cents to the mix, essentially telling republicans that if they want a seat at the table they have to stop listening to Limbaugh and become liberalites (because "he won").
...to which Limbaugh responds with customary accuracy.
And, of course, the Sacred Sock Puppet DID promise to close Gitmo in a year (sorta), and he DID promise to "create or preserve" a whole MESS of jobs...so it looks like President bumper sticker has found an innovative way to do two things at once - he's gonna get the former Gitmo detainees jobs with al-Qaida!
I've even got a slogan for his new program: "Out of work, jihadi? Gitmo Get's You Hired!"
Ah, yes...such a Brave New World.......
