I'm trying to understand that reply. Do you mean that it is a RINO act to adjust your opinion in accordance with truth and fact after first following BS party line propaganda blindly?

There is no reason for tax dollars to support the largest abortion operation in the US. He voted right the first time. Perhaps he is in a close race this fall and is just trying to save his own ass rather than adhere to any particular principles.

--because he failed to look into the issues last year and voted wrong based only on right wing media hyped lies.
Morning Digest: Why this New Hampshire Republican just voted to restore Planned Parenthood's funding

LOL.

It's interesting one of the most vile propagators of partisan hype and lies (DailyKos) is used to complain about perceived right wing media hyped lies. Oops.

According to the Republican himself, he changed his vote because PP is no longer under investigation in his state, so he has opted to treat it like any other organization. The fact he is running for governor and needs votes could also play into it, but the investigation quote is the only fact to go on.

Actually he voted on the premise that the discredited abortion sale videos last summer were real. Fortunately he admitted his error.

Ironic, isn't it? Too bad Mrs. Rodham didn't have the vision and the cajones to abort Hill. Even greater irony that the Moms of all you libbie/commie/socialists out there didn't have access to abortion services before you were born. The world would be a much better place.

Can I get an AMEN on dat?

Tax dollars do not pay for any abortions. It's illegal and P.P. is closely audited.

Can you discuss the issue rationally and sensibly without descending into childish hate?

They are the largest abortion provider in America and should not be getting money confiscated from people who find what they do to be morally reprehensible. They should be financed by people who support abortions, not those who don't.

Does this apply to other aspects of Federal spending or just abortions? Do I get personal veto power over every single line item in the government docket that I find "morally reprehensible?" If not, why is your personal moral code uniquely obeyed in such a manner?

Because I demand Lockheed Martin lose all Federal funding.

The tax dollars are not used for abortions or any abortion-related activities. So your concerns are unwarranted.

Right. It's called "democracy". We each oppose some policy and spending of our tax dollars. It's a price we pay for living in a somewhat "democratic" society.

I see no reason why money should be taken by force from you and given to Lockheed Martin. Do you?

And whose makers are currently facing not just civil but criminal cases. Hopefully the courts will grind them into dust like they deserve, to make an example out of those vile humans.

/sigh

You do realize that PP does a whole lot more than abortions, don't you? Why are you in favor of cervical cancer in poor women? Since PP does a lot more detecting and treating cervical cancer in poor women than it does providing abortion services.

I would have loved for my few bucks a year to not go to Blackwater to act outside the law in Iraq, a war I was vehemently against, and commit atrocities in our name so bad that they had to change THEIR name. Where's my reimbursement check?

1: No tax money goes towards abortion so no ones money is being spent on abortion.

2: There are tons of things that many many people don't agree with that tax money goes to. Wars, gun regulation that doesn't do squat, spending money over seas when there's so much that we should be taking care of first are just a few of the things that I wish our tax money wasn't spent on. And yet....it still is.
