For Poor People, No Family Planning Funds And Off With Their Heads

Women's reproductive healthcare is not important.

Evaluating the economic stimulus effect of states using Medicaid money for family planning without the need for a waiver from the Department of Health and Human Services on its merits is not serious business. It's just a sideshow.

After all, it seems our beloved politicians agree in a most harmonious bipartisan manner that providing family planning funds for the low-income is, by definition, an example of wasteful spending that would neither create jobs nor otherwise improve the economy.
