Yesterday the Senate Finance Committee voted against a government-run public insurance option. Fuckers. Democrats Kent Conrad (ND) and Blanche Lincoln (AR) refused to support a public option, but they did vote to restore federal funding to a program that has been proven to not only be ineffective, but downright dangerous.
When even Texas admitted abstinence-only “education” is a failure, I figured it was done for. But abstinence-only is the Energizer bunny of bone-headed programs. I cannot believe the hypocrisy. Congress might as well throw $50 million into a bonfire on the Senate floor to keep themselves warm this winter. The measure to restore funding still has to pass the full House and Senate.
