There has been a lot of talk lately about the Hyde Amendment. For those of you who don’t know what it does, it bans federal dollars for abortions.

The anti-choice people feel that since they are against abortion, they should not have their tax dollars paying for it. I agree.

I’m against my tax dollars going to fund private and religious schools. I’m against my tax dollars going to pay for unnecessary military spending on equipment that is out-dated before it’s finished. I’m against my tax dollars paying for all the golf games this inept clown of a president charges the American people (you and me) for bringing his adult children to a country they weren’t invited to.

And yet I pay my taxes and pretend that my money is going to a good place like Planned Parenthood. So I’ll make you a deal; we will abolish the Hyde Amendment and I’ll pretend my money is helping poor women and you can pretend your money is going to the biggest baby of all.
