Why should we have to pay for their abortions? If they get pregnant they should pay. I am not supporting this and neither should the president

Years and years ago there was no need for Planned Parenthood .The parent is responsible for that.So why spend the money on something that is not needed.If u the parent are that stupid to not teach your children about life,then you need to have your head examined.Stop wasting taxpayers money.

I agree 100%. Unfortunately we have so many babies having babies and very irresponsible parents out there but why should my tax dollars help to raise someone else's child. They should be looking at the welfare system as well. Every time I drive through Allentown, I see my tax dollars at work. People walking around or sitting on a porch and looking for the next baby's daddy to come a long so they can get more welfare money. This country is SOOOO messed up. What happened to the good ole U S of A? We are no longer the greatest country in the world no matter what people believe or what our government tells us. We are one totally messed up MESS..

If they do shut down government this is just going to put everything at a stand still. It wont make things better, it'll only make things worse. Im hoping they'll put it off for another week and figure out an agreement instead of pointing fingers. I don't care who started it as long as they FIX it.

If you cut Planned parenthood, you will have thousands of unwanted or abandoned children. Who will pay for them? US because they will be placed into Child Services anyway. The other option is many children will become homeless,develop an addiction or commit crimes. Who pays for that? US So be careful what you wish for!

Yes, let us stop the Republiscum ExxonWhore TAX and STEAL corporate welfare plans. There should be NO corporate welfare and we need to return immediately to actually taxing corporations.

If GE and Bank of America and Exxon refuse to pay taxes then we should boot them out of the USA. Why should these global predators get to live in our country, pay zero in taxes and receive billions in corporate welfare?

Walmart that purveyor of 85% Chinese schlock goods is the largest single user of social services in the USA. Let's boot them out in favor of actual AMERICAN companies.
