We WILL stay out of your business if you stay out of our pocketbooks and don't expect taxpayers to pay for your bad decisions.

It won't happen. Liberal democrats are like spoiled children who expect their parents to buy them anything they want, then scream and throw a tantrum if they are expected to follow any rules or show any responsibility. And forget asking them to do any chores to help out

Ever heard of the Gifts Act, Linda? This is a piece of legislation that allows for transfer of funds for fetal tissue to take place. Our government funds this business on the periphery of the abortion industry via research grants to institution such as NIH. These research grants drive demand for fetal tissue, and through it, the demand for abortions. These research grants are supported by tax dollars.

Taxpayers provide the funds that not only drive the demand for abortions but also allow organizations such as Planned Parenthood to become filthy rich in meeting that demand.

If there are no taxpayer funded abortions, why was Planned Parenthood screaming about the republicans voting to de-fund them. Hmm. It seems that there IS taxpayer funding for abortion providers. . . who knew? Um, yeah, all of us. Except people for whom this fact is inconvenient.

Linda, it is patently false that people have not paid one cent in new taxes under Obama. First of all, cigarette taxes were raised. Secondly, there is now a sun tanning tax on those that go to tanning booths.
You DO know that, don't you?

You DO know that you paid to bail out Wall Street and the banks which went right back into business screwing up the country, right? You DO know that there are no tax-payer funded abortions, right? You DO know that during the Obama administration, you have not paid one cent in new taxes, right?

This is getting ridiculous.

First, the DNC turns into a giant pro-choice rally. Now, is out with a disgusting, fear-mongering attack ad about how the GOP will take women back to the era of back-alley abortions. Not only is it utterly offensive and completely off-point from voters' concerns, it conflates Mitt Romney's personal position on the issue with the GOP platform, so it's misleading, too. 

Nevermind the moral debate about abortion -- although you can find a great perspective on the pro-life cause here --...
