In the Democratic Presidential Debate, Hillary Clinton took a swing at Republicans for the anti-big government stance in all areas except abortion. According to TPM Livewire, Mrs. Clinton said:
“You know, Republicans and their sympathizers — they say ‘you can’t have paid leave,’ ‘you can’t provide health care.’ They don’t mind having big government interfere with a woman’s right to choose and take down Planned Parenthood,” the former Secretary of State said. “They’re fine with big government when it comes to that. I’m sick of it!”
Hillary Clinton is right. Republicans don’t like big government. Big Government isn’t necessary for many things, but when it comes to protecting the lives of the most vulnerable and most innocent, that’s a valid time for the government to step in.
Big Government should stay out of most areas of our lives, but if we have to have big government, it should protect the unborn who can’t speak for themselves.
