Why isn’t it divisive to use taxpayer dollars to support an organization that has been caught engaging in organ harvesting for money?
A story in The Hill shows you how value assumptions are almost never stated, but are instead simply assumed: “Planned Parenthood fight raises chances of shutdown, says budget expert.”
Budget expert Stan Collender estimates there’s a 60 percent chance of a government shutdown in October given the divisive fight over federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
A week ago, Collender predicted there was only a 40 percent chance.
“The chance of a federal government shutdown increased dramatically and precipitously last week from 40 percent to 60 percent. It’s now more likely than not that a shutdown will result from the craziness going on in Washington,” he wrote in a column posted Monday on Forbes.com.
“If anything, 60 percent may understate the odds of it actually happening,” added Collender, executive vice president at Qorvis MSLGROUP.
He said the debate over where to increase government spending next year is already creating a stalemate between Democrats and Republicans. Even more divisive, he said, is the GOP push to defund Planned Parenthood.
So it is “divisive” to want to defund an organization caught crushing babies in the womb in a way that leaves their lungs intact so they can be sold. Planned Parenthood isn’t doing anything divisive as it rakes in corporate welfare. Nope. Republicans who want to defund Planned Parenthood are the ones being divisive.
We are a nation of disgusting Nazis. When will God put this country out of its misery?
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) could create a coalition of moderates and Democrats in each chamber to pass a spending package that continues to fund Planned Parenthood, Collender wrote, but that could be blocked by 2016 presidential candidates.
So Boehner and McConnell will be heroes for wanting to increase spending and continuing to fund the human organ traffickers, but the Presidential candidates are villains for opposing them.
