What's wrong with abstinence education?
As for Ruddy's abstinence-only policy, recent reports, including one contracted by Bush's HHS, show that after more than $1 billion has been poured into the enterprise, it simply doesn't work. Already nine states have opted out from federal funds for this faith-based boondoggle in favor of more comprehensive and effective programs of sex education for their youth.

"I can't think of another federal program where so much money was spent without any oversight and to such little effect," said James Wagoner, president of Advocates for Youth, a national organization that promotes comprehensive sexual health policies. "It wasn't that policy-makers didn't know that abstinence-only didn't work. In 2000 the Institute of Medicine issued a scathing report on these programs. But they went full steam ahead despite the warning. It's beyond naïve. It's immoral."

remember this?
The Abstinence Gluttons
Over the past six years George W. Bush's faith-based Administration and a conservative Republican Congress transformed the small-time abstinence-only business into a billion-dollar industry. These dangerously ineffective sexual health enterprises flourish not because they spread "family values" but because of generous helpings of the same pork-heavy gumbo Bush & Co. brought to war-blighted Iraq and Katrina-hammered New Orleans--a mix of back-scratching cronyism, hefty partisan campaign donations, high-dollar lobbyists, a revolving door for political appointees and a lack of concern for results.

If you can honestly admit if a Repubican had said Obama doesn't talk with a Negro dialect if he doesn't want to and you wouldn't say it was racist remark, you might have an argument.

Absolutely. Same with charter schools, virtual schools; it's a way to scam the government out of huge amounts of money,. Jeb Bush is a champion at that; so is Rick Scott.
A man who scammed the government out of Medicare funds with his mental health clinics here in Fl just got 14 years in prison. If he got 14 years; Rick Scott should get life. But, nope! He became the Governor!!
Go ahead and leave out the fact that the guy who got 14 years is a convicted cocaine trafficer.

Segment of John Boehner's interview with David Gregory on Meet the Press Sunday.
JOHN BOEHNER: There are smarter ways to cut spending than these automatic across the board.
DAVID GREGORY: But Mr. Speaker that's just not true. They've made it very clearly, as the president just did, that he has a plan that he's put forward that involves entitlement cuts, that involves spending cuts, that you've made a choice as have Republicans to leave tax loopholes in place. And you'd rather have those and live with all these arbitrary cuts...
JOHN BOEHNER: Well, David that's just nonsense. If he had a plan, why wouldn't Senate Democrats go ahead and pass it? The House has acted twice over the last ten months to replace the sequester. The president got his tax hikes on January the first. If we're going to get rid of loopholes, let's lower rates and make the tax code fair for all Americans.
..."If he (Obama) had a plan, why wouldn't Senate Democrats go ahead and pass it?"
Good question.
Carol is a lying POS.

You even lied about your above transcript.

Boehner said the white House had no plan (left off your quote.

This is what Gregory said was not true,.

You know, Carol, you lose the argument when you have to resort of this type of lying.

No, Eman asked for example of the middle class being denied medical care. he's still waiting for examples.....since it happens so often, should be simple, but you loony left wingers seem to be having a difficult time.
Last week, the doctor arranged a CT for my wife. The Medial Center called & told her she needed to bring $100.00 Cash or else they would turn her away.

And we have good Health Insurance.

What about those who have none or a lesser policy and didn't have that $100 or more since their deductible could have been much higher?

The idea you fricken dunbasses think everyone get medical care today shows just how GD stupid you are.

States with ‘abstinence-only’ sex ed programs rank highest in teen pregnancies

Studies have indicated that abstinence-only programs may end up deterring contraceptive use among teens who do have sex, whereas teenagers who have been taught a comprehensive sex ed curriculum are “60 percent less likely” to become pregnant or get someone else pregnant.

Additionally, a 2007 federal study indicated that abstinence-only education ultimately had “no impacts ” at all on rates of sexual abstinence.
