Laws that limit economic expansion should be repealed first. An increase in minimum wage is inflationary and increases unemployment for younger workers without experience. Repeal all minimum wage laws- salaries should be based on the value to the business and should be just between boss and workers without government or union interference. Talk of reducing payroll taxes are bad- they are needed to pay for retirement for those already retired and for those in the future.
Watch out for more crashed hard drives! Seems to be this administrations fall back position.

You may be right on the money!
This issue is not about contraceptives at all it is about NOW wanting the freedom of sex without consequences as often as men- equality for women. Pregnancy is not a disease and preventing it should not be a part of health care. It is a matter of personal discipline. Especially for singles, if you cannot afford to be pregnant, lay off the recreational sex.
Yes, it's all about PORK. The incumbent is able to show all the money he has brought to the district. That is especially true of the Senate that has refused to cut out earmarks from the budget. Even when there are competitive bids, congressmen like to take credit for government money coming in- a real stretch but I know it happens.

He wasn't paying attention in civics- just had his own ideas.
Let's face it the issue is not contraceptives or abortion. It is the right to have sex without consequences- the sex is recreation, not reproduction to them. The WHOLE purpose of sexual intercourse is offspring. It's the natural law. Goes for all species! Pregnancy is not a disease and therefore is not part of preventative health. If you don't want to get pregnant, no sex or pay for it yourself!
He's only interested in controlling the scenario. This isn't in his favor- not interested!
surplus only means for the current year income exceeded expenditures. It doesn't mean that they didn't borrow more and increase the overall debt.
I'm not so sure it was all his efforts. The legislature was almost veto proof and he went along with it rather than face a veto override.
