Drudge Has A Hissy Fit Over Pelosi

Nothing new here, but it does merit mentioning:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi boldly defended a move to add birth control funding to the new economic "stimulus" package, claiming "contraception will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government."

Pelosi, the mother of 5 children and 6 grandchildren, who once said, "Nothing in my life will ever, ever compare to being a mom," seemed to imply babies are somehow a burden on the treasury.

The revelation came during an exchange Sunday morning on ABC's THIS WEEK.

First things first. When people are stuck at home then they find things to do at home. At the top of that list is sex. The last thing we need is a baby boom coming out of this economy.

Drudge also seems to think that babies aren’t a burden on our treasury. If that is the case then can someone tell me how schools get funded? Does the magic school fairy sprinkle money all over them? And that’s not even mentioning the people who have babies they can’t afford. Should we let this new life go just because their parents are in economic hard times? If the answer is no, then who pays for it? The government in the form of welfare.

Finally I need to give a big kudos to Pelosi. Drudge probably doesn’t even realize how much he helped her, but read this line again:

Pelosi, the mother of 5 children and 6 grandchildren, who once said, "Nothing in my life will ever, ever compare to being a mom," seemed to imply babies are somehow a burden on the treasury.

Pelosi is a Catholic, which as we all know is strongly against birth control, yet she is putting her own personal beliefs on the back burner and putting forward something she feels is much better for the country as a whole. Could you imagine a Republican doing that? SCHIP had close to 80% public approval and the Republicans killed that for their own, narrow-minded beliefs. Drudge has shown that Pelosi symbolizes  what a leader in a democracy should be – working for the people, not her own beliefs, personal or religious. That’s democracy right there.
