WASHINGTON, D.C., April 12, 2013 (Acton Institute) - Obamas new budget is in. The usual political wrangling is taking place, but there are some undeniable facts about the budget. Taxes are going up (is anyone surprised?), but some of those taxes are sneaky ones on senior citizens designed to fund things other than their health. In all, the presidents budget will raise taxes by $1.1 trillion dollars. (That number shouldnt shock you: President Obama is the first president to ever spend $4 trillion in one year.)
One area of great concern in this budget is abortion funding. Despite the fact that a solid majority of Americans dont want to pay for other peoples abortions, Obamas new budget calls for $30 million more to do just that. In 2011, $542 million taxpayer dollars went to Planned Parenthood, the nations largest provider of abortions. Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization, yet reported last year revenues in excess of $87 million, and assets over $1 billion.
In addition to heavily funding Planned Parenthood, the budget will fund abortions for Peace Corps volunteers, prison inmates, immigration detainees, and American military personnel.
On the Fund Abortion Now website, there is this:
President Obama unveiled his 2014 budget this morning. We commend the President for striking restrictions on D.C. funding of abortion for low-income women in his budget and for moving to lessen some of the restrictions on coverage for women in the Peace Corps. However, we join many other groups in the womens health and rights community in our disappointment that he did not take a critical step toward lifting the current Medicaid coverage ban. President Obama could have taken this historic opportunity at the dawn of his second term in office to present a clean budget to Congress; he did not.
Every year politicians use the budget process to deny abortion coverage for women enrolled in any federal insurance plan. But it doesnt have to be this way. A budget is a moral document: it reflects our values. [Emphasis added.]
Again, there are undeniable truths about this budget. It increases the amount of taxpayer money that will fund abortions, a move which most Americans disapprove of. It funds this is some sneaky ways. It increases the groups of women receiving abortion coverage as health care. And most undeniably, this budge makes a moral statement: President Obama doesnt care that you dont want your money to kill babies. Hes going to do it anyway. Just like the kid who steals the lunch money of the weaker classmate in the school bathroom, Obamas going to take your taxpayer dollars and use it just the way he wants. Thats bullying.
Does this mean Kermit Gosnell is in line to get a cabinet post?
He just can’t get enough of killing.
It’s a new experience for the inexperienced one whose only achievement in life was being a community agitator. His time in the Illinoise (sp) Legislature and the U. S. Senate was strictly as a backbencher. One wouldn’t even know he was there.
Hummmm, President Obama and Margaret Sanger on the same page — whodathunkit
“The unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit,’ [is] the greatest present menace to civilization the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.” Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood
They will never be happy until there are extermination camps for abortion procedures. The happy leftist genocide continues.
Obama’s had a hand in killing more blacks than the Klan.
Any kid who’s mother had an abortion better sleep with one eye open,she may change her mind about you.
all this junk in Obama’s budget will get the money ,when congress passes another bill to keep the government running ,Obama will never have a budget in his 20 + years at the WH
