Democrats and their human shields … the new agenda

Congressman Bart Stupak made headlines when he told the National Review that Democrats see unborn babies as a luxury their government just can’t afford. Then Stupak reiterated his earlier comments last night on Greta Van Susteran’s show.


Here are his original remarks:

What are Democratic leaders saying? “If you pass the Stupak amendment, more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more. That’s one of the arguments I’ve been hearing,” Stupak says. “Money is their hang-up. Is this how we now value life in America? If money is the issue — come on, we can find room in the budget. This is lifewe’re talking about.”

Many scoffed and doubted his remarks and chalked it up to hyperbole. But as Michelle reminds us, not so much. When it comes to baby human shields to promote health care, babies matter, but not so much unborn babies. In fact, as you compile the evidence, Stupak’s revelations seem mild. Consider Nancy Pelosi a year ago on This Week, defending stimulus money going to family planning.


Game on. This is indeed a battle over what direction we will take, or the Democrats intend to take this country. Senator Sherrod Brown makes it clear on Obamacare … and Nancy Pelosi makes it clear on the rest of the agenda.

Pelosi argued that passing reform would give Dems a tool for drawing a sharp ideological contrast with Republicans and conservatives over time.

“Give them credit for being true to their convictions,” Pelosi said. “They don’t believe in health care for all Americans with any public role in it. That’s by and large what the Republican Party believes.”

Pelosi said passing the bill would allow Dems to undertake a “debate” with Republicans over “what is the balanced role that government should have.”

“We have to take it to the American people, to say, this is the choice that you have,” she said. “This is the vision that they have for your health and well being, and this is the vision that we have.”

I have heard many of you call sounding like the fight is too tough and fighting won’t do any good anyway. Witness our poll. They will never give up and neither should we.

    So, by Pelosi "logic", if we "minimize" births, we will keep costs down.  Uh huh.  Two problems with that (aside from the obvious infanticide issue):


    1) who will be around to pay for the Gen X, Y, Zero?  A Ponzi scheme, particularly a government one, needs a base of, well, "marks", to finance the people at the top.  Upsidedown pyramids don't work.


    2) Since reducing the population at one end of the scale will cut costs, what about the other end?  Does cutting a half trillion dollars from Medicare ring a bell?  What age segment of the population requires the most care, and thus is the most expensive?  Do the math.  Even the new Democrat math will tell you who they are targeting.


    Amazingly, they aren't even being subtle about it.  A testament to the media induced complacency of much of the American people, particularly the especially dull Democrats.

    The DC obsession for health reform is a projection of its own illness. Washington needs   THERAPY. America  suffers  from  an Oedipus complex. In 1776 America killed its father , the King of England. In the 19th century America married its mother, gave  women the right to vote, and became a nanny state.  Now America sits like the old Cronus who feared he would be overthrown by his children the same way   Cronus himself   killed his father to become God. The depraved fear of losing power possesed Cronus to eat every child as it was born so that none would  live to overthrow him. This is today in America slaughering those who are yet to be born. If we don't cannibalize them in the womb , we  crush them with  an  impossible future of debt and taxes.
