HECK YES! Steve King Wants to Use Planned Parenthood, Welfare Funding to Build The Wall...
As Trump begins to fulfill some of his campaign pledges (see CLEANUP: Trump Fires 500 From VA, Suspends 200 More), many are patiently awaiting the promised wall. You know the one. THE WALL. There's been lots of talk regarding just how we should acquire the funds to pay for the beauteous barrier. All of which have, of course, triggered buckets of offended! outrage! from! leftists!
Fret not, babies, GOP Rep. Steve King has a new solution in mind.
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, argued Wednesday that Congress should build President Trump's border wall by taking money from Planned Parenthood and federal food stamps.
On CNN, King said he supports the $1.6 billion in funding that the House is considering as a start for building the wall. But he said he'd add another $5 billion if he had his way.
"And I would find half of a billion dollars of that right out of Planned Parenthood's budget," he said. "And the rest could come out of food stamps and the entitlements that are being spread out for people that haven't worked in three generations."
CNN's Alyson Camerota almost died. Naturally, working for a Fake News Factory such as CNN, Alyson isn't a fan of such rational ideas. CNN is not in the business of solving problems. Blackmailing Redditors for creating funny GIFs on the other hand? Put them in the "YES" column (see CNN Threatens to "Dox" Anonymous Trump/WWE GIF Creator. Americans' Backlash Begins). Memers beware.
But Mr. King has a great point. The majority of Planned Parenthood's services are abortions and, seeing as the murder of tiny humans is not a human right, PP could survive off of significantly less federal funding. Pardon us for not shedding tears.
We also know there are loads of loafers lazing about collecting government benefits they don't need. Unless you count increasing one's risk for diabetes as a "need." Before any leftist, puckered sphincters start huffing and puffing - here's how we know. Multiple states have implemented policies where welfare recipients have to work to receive benefits. It resulted in a big pile of no thanks. Read Mississippi Passes Law Requiring Welfare Recipients to Work. The Results? and Maine Makes Welfare Recipients Work for it. Guess What Happens Next and GET OUT! Food Stamp Doles Decline Dramatically When Work is Required. It's almost like there's a track record of this stuff.
Rather than shoveling more money into the incinerator, we should put our taxpayer money to good use. Border security is a good start. Especially considering the amount of people who, you know, voted for it. Also protecting the nation's border is actually a responsibility of the government. Funding the slaughter of unborn babies? Not so much.
