Obama Won’t Sign Zika Bill Unless Congress Increases Planned Parenthood Funding…A Lot
Obama is threatening to veto the 1.1 billion dollar Zika funding because it blocks any of the money from going to Planned Parenthood. (PP) Zika affects women who are pregnant or want to get pregnant. PP is trying to make the case that they provide abortions and contraceptives and therefore should get millions more in government money. Last year PP received $528.4 million in federal funding. They made a profit for the year of $127 million.
Last year Congress tried to cut the 60 million in discretionary funding. They questioned PP President Cecile Richards and asked her a simple question. Since PP made 127 million in profit, would PP not been able to provide every single service they provided without the 60 million. She said no, not just once but several times. Either she is a moron or she thinks congress is. (Personally, I think it’s both) But, one thing I know is that without the 60 million, PP would still have made a 67 million dollar profit and provided every single service they had provided with the money. It’s a no brainer and so is Richards.
Harry “The Sleaze” Reid weighed in on denying PP Zika funds. But, who cares.
Brazil was able to eliminate the Zika carrying mosquitoes in the 1950s and 1960s by using DDT. That is unacceptable to liberals because DDT is a product manufactured by Monsanto. The US banned the use of DDT in 1972 despite the fact that there was no evidence of danger in using the pesticide. In later years, Africa suffered a crippling increase in Malaria also carried by mosquitoes. They began using DDT and still do today. It has saved tens of millions of lives and there is no sign of the dangerous effects cited in banning it. No other pesticide has been effective in wiping out the dangerous insects.
