    It's an old culture war. Even the wild eyed drooling left should realize that we can't afford free abortions at taxpayer expense. A good example of skewed left wing priorities is the former democrat governor of Virginia cutting back spending. He closed most of the rest stops on the interstates. How's that for spending cuts? He put us all in jeopardy of tired drivers not to mention the distraction of having to use the bathroom or the hazard of stopping along the interstate to change a diaper. The first thing the republican governor did was to re-open the rest stops and he still cut the budget.

    Oh boy, another story about evil Republicans starving people and slashing benefits. Boo fucking hoo.

    How original. Quite the one-trick-pony these leftist whackaloons.

    I don't quite get your point. Are you trying to argue that more people approve of spending taxes on abortions than oppose spending more money period? Could I also point out that a sizable percentage of Democrats also oppose spending tax money on abortions, or would that make you partisan tripe fall apart?

    Just an FYI, I oppose any government spending on any news organization at all. NPR depends on government funding, yet supposedly has an unbiased news division. Anyone who does not oppose government funded news is a complete idiot.

    I am surprised that the Post apparently thinks that politicians are capable of doing only one thing at a time. If one tries to ensure that abortions are not funded by taxpayers.... that automatically means they cannot focus on jobs.
