The federal government is required to protect the citizens of the country and to pass and operate on budgets. The federal government is doing neither. Even though the congressional leadership promised how different things would be, today is the last day of the fiscal year for the government. We have no budget to even present to the executive. Instead, a last minute continuing resolution was passed and will be good until December 11. Of course, on December 11 another continuing resolution will be passed and all will continue as in the past.
Yesterday a well-publicized hearing was held where a congressional oversight committee was investigating the necessity of the federal government continuing to give Planned Parenthood $500 million. When we read the 26 powers to which the federal government is restricted, one has to become very creative to determine that the federal government is allowed such a role. The tenth amendment would restrict that type of a power to the states and the people. The question of whether the federal government has such a constitutional power was not mentioned but all participants seemed to stipulate to the assumed power.
The facts on the funding were quite clear. Planned Parenthood collected $147 million more than they spent in their latest fiscal year. The president of Planned Parenthood received compensation of almost $600 thousand dollars per year. Members of Planned Parenthood flew first class, attended first class parties, and they spent money like the IRS. Even though Planned Parenthood is receiving funds from you and me the president of Planned Parenthood was explaining what she would and would not show the congress or we the people. Planned Parenthood and its supporters are saying that Planned Parenthood is critical to women’s health in America. Women’s health in America is not the responsibility of the federal government according to the constitution. Congress has a responsibility to spend the people’s money judiciously.
Within a matter of days or perhaps weeks, the hearing that was held yesterday will have been forgotten. One year from now, nothing will have changed. Planned Parenthood will unconstitutionally be receiving the people’s money. Planned Parenthood will be even more irresponsible with our money and killing more babies so they can sell the organs of that child.
Until we find another Calvin Coolidge, the Marxist/Progressives will continue to drive this once great nation to a dramatic crisis from which we might never recover. It is critical that we Freedom Loving Americans determine who that next Calvin Coolidge is and then unite behind them. That candidate must have the strength and moral courage to withstand the onslaught of the Marxist/Progressives. Each individual Freedom Loving American must have that same strength and moral courage. A free, moral, and great United States will be the result. The fight will be worth it.
