“I deny them because I’ve never seen them” said Richards.
“I pulled them from your corporate reports” says Chaffetz
"Oh," Richards said, appearing deflated.
Then staff behind Richards leaned over to whisper into her ear. She interrupted Chaffetz.
"Excuse me, my lawyer is informing me that the source of this is actually Americans United for Life, which is an anti-abortion group," she said. "So, I would check your source."
It was Chaffetz's turn to appear deflated. "Then we will get to the bottom of the truth of that," he said.
To his credit Chaffetz did admit today that his chart was "misleading". But then he had to spoil it all by saying he isn't raising hell about abortions, its all about the money.
Its all about 500 million dollars, says Chaffetz, that the taxpayers fund Planned Parenthood with.
Around here, in the US of A, you cant even blow your nose on 500 Million.
That's about what they pay for Big Bird too. There has to be some better ways to save some money besides sticking it to Womens Health and Big Bird.
I usually stay out of the abortion debate. I don't have a vagina or womb. Or breasts. If the Supreme Court were to rescind Roe vs. Wade, I would go along with that simply out of my respect for the Court.
