Ha! On another site a conservative claimed that all the unrest in the Middle East was because of Bush's efforts to spread democracy there. Hahahahahahaha!

Chart Of The Day

Plannedparenthood

Ezra Klein breaks down Planned Paranthood's spending:

As you can see in the chart atop this post, abortion services account for about 3 percent of Planned Parenthood’s activities. That’s less than cancer screening and prevention (16 percent), STD testing for both men and women (35 percent), and contraception (also 35 percent). About 80 percent of Planned Parenthood’s users are over age 20, and 75 percent have incomes below 150 percent of the poverty line. Planned Parenthood itself estimates it prevents more than 620,000 unintended pregnancies each year, and 220,000 abortions. It’s also worth noting that federal law already forbids Planned Parenthood from using the funds it receives from the government for abortions.

(Chart from (pdf) Planned Parenthood)

Comment by Doone on April 8, 2011 at 5:39pm

What Besides Spending?

OMB Watch has a list (pdf) of the policy riders in H.R. 1. These are additional policies attached to the GOP's bill to avert a government shutdown. Eli Lehrer reads the list andfinds that the abortion language - which is getting most attention - isn't necessarily the biggest hurtle: 

The proposed healthcare policy riders are so broad that if implemented, they would amount to an outright repeal of the healthcare bill. They offer so little wiggle-room that President Obama can’t, as a political mater, agree to even a single one of them as written.

Furthermore:

[T]he much longer list of environment-related riders looks like it was written almost entirely by specific industry lobbyists who have good relationships with certain members of Congress. Although there are some very broad efforts that would end virtually every climate-change or carbon-regulation program in the government, most of the environmental efforts are very narrow and, one assumes, serve a very few interests.

Politico says the EPA riders have been axed. Jay Newton-Small summarizes the Democrats' talking points:

Reid was asked by CNN's Brianna Keilar if he'd offered Boehner more money to drop the Title X rider. He said he had, but that Boehner had turned him down. This surprises me as I've always been under the impression that Boehner was using the policy riders as leverage for more cuts -- that he never really expected to move the needle on abortion, climate change or health care reform. The brouhaha over the riders must be taken with a grain of salt as it behooves Dems to portray Boehner as obsessed with "extreme" riders rather than negotiating in good faith on funding the government.

I wish I knew Neal, I only saw their tweets, who knows? It may be just a political strategy on the part of Weiner and Gillibrand, to say that it came down to women's health.
Comment by Neal on April 8, 2011 at 5:32pm

What does that mean? They accepted riders or conservatives removed them?

Comment by Adriana on April 8, 2011 at 5:20pm
I agree with DG, there are MANY conservative women but overall most women tend to be more liberal than men. It may make a difference, doone's point may be valid too. Hmmm....We need to do the EXPERIMENT!
Comment by Adriana on April 8, 2011 at 5:09pm
I'm following H=Gillibrand and weiner on Twitter; they said agreement was reached on everything except women's health.
Comment by Neal on April 8, 2011 at 5:07pm

You really have to look at all the riders. Women hit hard, environment possibly taking a harder it. This has nothing to do with budget, culture wars picking up once again.

 

A good list of the riders here, unreal.
