Pro-life Democrats have many goals incommon with Pro-choice Democrats.
I think this article pretty much sums up Republicans pposition while talking about Rick Santorum.
Mr. Santorum’s blind support of the Presidents Bush’s policies supporting the killing in Iraq, the withdrawal of support for health care programs like the Ryan White Act, and the gutting of food aid programs for the world’s poorest countries indicates a record characterized by an indifference to life issues while proclaiming himself to be “Pro-Life”. The reality is that he is better described as “Pro-Birth”, based on his support for some abortion-related legislation that itself has had no effect on the abortion rates nationally. Santorum turned his back on many of the Bishops requests to Congress and voted against measures concerning Mercury exposure, Medicaid, Child Care, Gun Control, Housing for the poor, just wages, just war, nuclear weapons, Global AIDS funding, and immigration.
It is vital that Catholic candidates like Mr. Santorum stop treating human life as a "wedge" issue for political gain, and start voting in a manner that supports the value and dignity of all life. A Catholic candidate should stand against cutting off 300,000 poor kids from after-school programs. One can not be "pro-life" and leave one American in six without health insurance. The "dignity of life" is not defended while also permitting millions to fall out of the middle class. Catholic teaching is a “seamless garment” of consistent theology, not a buffet. Therefore, we cannot endorse Mr. Santorum.
Looks like Jean Schmidt has won the Republican nomination. So it looks like Hackett won't get to run against McEwen's corruption directly like it did earlier, but the State Republican parties actions will leave him plenty to run against corruption wise.
"If the rich are paying lower taxes guess what yin's will be paying higher taxes especially when it comes to state and local taxes or you'll be getting reduced services like paying more for garabage pickup, having your social security benefits cut, paying more for college and health care.
So our plan is that the rich elistists on their yachts should pay their fair share and that people like you all shouldn't have bare the unfair burden of oppressivly high taxes just because the millions and billions are paying a marginal tax rate of 35% when it should be much higher."
Nato and our government aren't doing anything in the Sudan.
Do you think its a matter that they just don't care or do you think its a matter of countries feeling that the potential cost of loss of life by their own citizens with ground troops isn't worth the potential of saving lives of many Sudanese?
