Since everyone is writing the tip line to tell us this here is your post.
Specifically it took umbrage with Erick saying Deal voted to fund abortions:
Furthermore, the bill had nothing to do with “actual abortions.” Title X explicitly states that “none of the funds appropriated under this subchapter shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” This has been the rule since the program began.
If a clinic that receives Title X funding also performs abortions, it must make sure none of that federal money goes to those services.
For instance, if women getting abortions share a waiting room with those who receive federally funded family planning services, the clinic can’t bill the government for the entire cost of running the waiting room. It must subtract the proportion that goes to pay for patients waiting for abortion services.
This sounds a lot like what Karen Handel did when she voted to pass-through funding for Planned Parenthood to perform “services like cervical cancer screening, testing for sexually transmitted diseases and birth control.”
What did Nathan Deal have to say about that?
“Politicians who vote to give your money to abortion providers can spin it anyway they like, but taxpayer dollars for one service frees up money elsewhere to provide abortion services,” Deal said.
Here is the problem neither the left nor the right manage to get through their thick skulls. When you allow government to expand to this point, every action is going to be something someone disagrees with. If the right is upset that money is going towards groups that fund abortions, perhaps you shouldn’t be spending federal dollars on health care. To the left, if you don’t like that the religious-right wants to redefine evolution or have prayer in schools, perhaps you shouldn’t be shoving a one-size-fits-all education system down everyone’s throats.
Yes, Deal and Handel voted to authorize to appropriate money to Planned Parenthood, or to forward a check someone else wrote. Big F–ing Deal. Stop spending money on stuff the government shouldn’t be spending money on and you won’t have these problems.
