Mexico City Policy...

Absurd to think, regardless of how you personally feel about the abortion issue, that our President, and Senate Leaders, would chose to vote NEA (a vote of ‘Nea’ removed the policy, that prevented Tax Dollars to go overseas specifically to fund abortions) killing the bill that prevents OUR TAX DOLLARS to go overseas for the purpose of funding abortions. With this administration already proposing record spending in forms of stimulus, programs, etc… whether you support abortions or not, we simply cannot afford to send tax dollars overseas for any reason except perhaps humanitarian. However, even then I still argue that you shouldn’t send money overseas for humanitarian needs when you have humanitarian issues on your own soil (Homeless, hunger, disease…etc).

If by "change we can believe in", you simply meant reversing all Republican policies, whether they make sense or not, then I suppose you were ‘just doing your job’. I just can’t see where this president thinks the money is going to come from. Typical Dem philosophy (See CA, MA…and other Blue States) spend without considering the deficit, then raise taxes to try to compensate. This philosophy is a failure simply because the people you are trying to help with all of this spending do not contribute to the tax pool. Then they (Dem's) wonder why they have run out of money.

Conservative Oasis had a well done blog post re: ‘Obama the Ice Cream Man’; In his post he illustrates a story involving two elementary students running for class President as part of their Teacher’s lesson.

The first student makes his campaign speach including detailed promises on how to make the class a better place and ends with a promise to do his best. Everyone applauded and the young man sat down.

The second student was much more concise; she simply said “If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream.” She then sat down.

Needless to say the class went wild, chanting “Yes! Yes! We want ice cream.” She surely would say more. She did not have to.

Afterwards a discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn’t sure. Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it. She didn’t know. The class really didn’t care. All they were thinking about was ice cream.

Remind you of anyone? If this administration continues to make promises and simply just withdraw from US Taxpayer as if we were the fabled “Money Tree”. I have to quote my father in saying; “surely, you realize, Money doesn’t grow on trees you know!”

Unfortunately, it will probably be received by the President about as well as it was by me at 7 years old. Mr. Obama, you can treat the US Taxpayer as you personally ATM; however, eventually, you will receive nothing but a slip of paper eloquently stating “Insufficient funds, have a nice Day.”
