We're not here right now. But if you leave a message with your name, number and time you called...
If you think crime is high now, just wait until you cut food stamps and parents become desperate to feed their children!
Conservatives say they don’t want Tax Dollars to pay for Safety Nets for the poor; Specifically, Food Stamps, Child Care, WIC, and Welfare
Conservatives also don’t want Tax Dollar funded Contraception; Specifically, Women’s Contraception.
Using the Conservative model of thinking, where everything is reduced to Dollars and Cents, their logic is flawed. Doesn’t it make fiscal sense to pay for contraception? Contraception is cheap, compared to eighteen plus years of food, clothing, housing and healthcare for mother and child.
Education would be cheaper still, but conservatives don’t like to admit that sex exists. For centuries there has been this failed battle to force morality on the populace. Even at the height of the AIDS crisis, when people were dying at an alarming rate, conservatives pushed ‘Abstinence-Only’ education. In the face of a deadly disease, Conservatives refuse to consider Sex Education and the proper use of Condoms.
Here’s the thing…
It’s a matter of National Security. When poverty and disease spread, the economy and health of the country fails.
