Another excellent idea

Some read meat to wrap up the week for all our social conservative friends out there.

Time to defund Planned Parenthood and time to defund it now.

We always thought that the debate surrounding whether or not ObamaCare was going to fund abortions was a curious one as Planned Parenthood received approx. 1/3rd of its funding from the U.S. tax-payers.

If budget cuts are going to be across the board, why should Planned Parenthood's government funding be off the table? Republican leadership would be wise in framing this strictly as a budgetary matter rather than a "values" issue.

We're positive the liberal-Left in this country can scrounge around the seat cushions to come up with that missing $360 million to continue to fund one of their favorite pet causes. Picture it: bake sales outside the Grammys and Oscars.

And on a related matter, Rick Santorum (Presidential hopeful?) makes a complete ass of himself in statements regarding abortion and Social Security solvency. Negocious Loucos writing for W.C. Varones has the details, here. Check it out as well as the lively debate in the comment section.
