And when the GAO completely exonerates Planned Parenthood from all impropriety the report will be flushed down the GOP memory hole.

As someone who recently got a "hey you might want to go get tested call" and paid a perfectly affordable price for said test/treatment I can attest to the fact that Planned Parenthood's money seems perfectly well spent. And can I just add, thank God for Planned Parenthood.

Doesn't this allow them to suspend funding because of their nonsense "Well they're being investigated!" crap that they pulled on ACORN?  I certainly hope not.

Yet the Christian-based "family planning" clinics in Virginia, who teach that condoms always fail, are still receiving taxpayer funding.

And when it finds impropriety, the excuse-makers will be saying "It was only $X of waste, fraud, and abuse, what's the big deal? We flush a thousand times that amount down the military/oil subsidies/yachts for Wall Street bankers every year."


No process is absolutely pristine; everything is tainted by waste, fraud, and abuse.  It's a question of how big of a problem it is compared to other similar processes and whether the cost of inspection and resolution exceeds the cost of the abuse.

jjorsett: Did you ever see the amount of fraud attributed to Medicare?


There's a lot less thanks to enforcement provisions in Obamacare. We recovered $4.1B in 2011, a record.

So, when will the accompanying investigation as to why Congress is forcing the Pentagon to buy equipment it doesn't need or want launch?

Don't worry. I won't hold my breath.

By providing women the contraception they need to avoid pregnancies they don't want, publicly funded contraceptive services yielded savings of $10.5 billion, or $5.68 for every $1 spent. Link

Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: I'll never, ever forget sitting in middle school health class being taught by those farktards that condoms have a 20% failure rate per use. I really wish I had just kicked that lady in her twat.


...and I'll never complain about my middle-school again.  Our health class described and compared every available method of contraception at the time. It was pretty darn realistic too... abstinence was described the only 100% effective method; the pill was described as the most effective method of contraception but warned that it didn't stop STDs; condoms were taught as being just under the pill for effectiveness and that they were best for stopping STDs; and so on down the progression, through withdrawl being just about the worst choice you could make (and why). And that class was mandatory for all students in both 7th and 8th grade.

I do wonder what Omaha Public Schools are teaching these days, though. The state seemed to be a bit more purple when I was growing up there.

They're called "family planning" because if you go to one, plan on having a new family.

InmanRoshi: Cracking down on women's health/Planned Parenthood has been proven winner for Republicans/Catholic Church/Right Wing Non-Profits time and time again, and made them the hugely popular institutions with women that they are today.   What could go wrong?


The lack of access to BC and safe abortions will lead to a rise in population in poverty stricken areas, allowing the GOP to find more people to blame for the status of the nation. It's really a win-win for them!
