This is not a debate over whether Planned Parenthood is important or a net benefit or net positive in society. This is a debate over whether or not the government should be able to force people to fund something even if they disagree with it. Take Planned Parenthood out of it for a second and just think about that principle. Should the government be able to force you to pay for something you don't want simply because they deem it worth it? Is that a power you want the government to have? Is your comfort with that power existing entirely dependent on it being used by people who agree with you? What happens when someone who disagrees with you is handed that power? Instead, end ALL corporate subsidies and drastically cut ALL government funding. Lower people's taxes by that amount. If it's important, people will fund it voluntarily out of those savings. Government funding is not a way to finance important things - it is a way to force the otherwise unwilling to finance things the people in power think are important, since the willing would fund it even without the government making them. There are lots of people on here talking about all the (alleged) good that Planned Parenthood does. Fine! Then when you start keeping the portion of taxes that was being directed to them, continue to donate that money yourself, directly. But LIBERTY, which is something our government is ACTUALLY charged with protecting, looks like no one being FORCED to fund ANYTHING involuntarily. I have the same policy toward Planned Parenthood as I have toward Big Oil and PBS and education and national parks and NASA and wars and practically everything else our government is doing. This bill is a start. It ought not be the end of rolling back what our government funds. But this defunding MUST be matched by an equivalent decrease in taxes. I don't want Planned Parenthood defunded just to find Washington is keeping the money now and putting it toward other pet projects of theirs. Give us our money back. It is not yours, you thieves and extortionists.
