At last a cost-cutting measure has been discovered that is likely to appeal to our spendthrift federal overlords — abortion:
CBO recently reported that, if passed by Congress, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would cost the government $225 million over the next 10 years by allowing children to be born instead of aborted.
The CBO says killing children will save the government money in healthcare costs and expenditures in welfare and other social programs. …
It first assumes each and every child born as a result of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will be a failure and thus a burden on society. One can hear a potential Planned Parenthood rallying cry – “an abortion in time saves the government a dime.” What’s next? Abortion tax credits? Not much of a stretch in light of the Obama administration’s insistence that people of faith provide abortion-inducing drugs as part of their health insurance plans.
Abortion could solve all of our budget woes; we just need to think big. If we abort every single baby, Obama could push the national debt the rest of the way to infinity, and no one would have to pay it off because by the time the ChiComs show up in tanks to get their money, we will all be gone.
