Sen. Scott Brown opposes defunding Planned Parenthood

Why don’t all you liberals, and yes I’m including Brown in that, just tell us what federal funding you will cut? Pretty please?

US Senator Scott Brown opposes a House Republican plan to cut all federal funding for Planned Parenthood, the womens’ health service provider, and today urged budget negotiators to reach a compromise.

“I support family planning and health services for women,” Brown, a Bay State Republican, said in a statement. “Given our severe budget problems, I don’t believe any area of the budget is completely immune from cuts. However, the proposal to eliminate all funding for family planning goes too far. As we continue with our budget negotiations, I hope we can find a compromise that is reasonable and appropriate.”

Every time anyone proposes cutting any program, with the exception of DoD, liberals defend the funding to the last cent, and even characterize any attempt to rein in any overspending as a “draconian cut.” NPR? Can’t cut that. NEA? Can’t cut that. Planned Parenthood — which has been caught in repeated stings skirting and breaking the law — why, we can’t cut that either.

So tell us, what will you cut? The way I see it, if we can’t cut the little stuff, there’s no way on this earth we’ll ever cut the big stuff. Will. Not. Happen.

While you’re being as decisive as Obama dealing with an international test, let’s ponder what the Dallad Fed chairman had to say about our financial predicament.

The U.S. debt situation is at a “tipping point,” Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher said on Tuesday, and urged the U.S. central bank to refrain from any further stimulus measures.

“If we continue down on the path on which the fiscal authorities put us, we will become insolvent. The question is when,” Fisher said in a speech at the University of Frankfurt.

Fisher, seen by economists as one of the most hawkish policymakers within the Fed, said that although debt-cutting measures would be painful, he expected the U.S. to take the necessary actions.

When will we take those actions? When?
