Disgusting...

How potent is the Democratic party's reverence for abortion? From the Dispatch this morning: "In the [budget] deal, aides said, Republicans dropped that demand [to defund Planned Parenthood]. In return, Democrats agreed to additional spending cuts."

In the scope of things, it was a relatively small amount of money, but it was the one thing I wish they'd stuck to their guns on.

Word has it that the Dems offered 2.5 billion in spending cuts in exchange for dropping the Planned Parenthood rider. I don't know how much tax money we currently give PP, but assuming it's not that much we're seeing the "PP premium" the Dems are willing to pay in order to keep abortion frequent.
