At the time, you argued for keeping the contraception funding in the stimulus package because it would help, "reduce cost[s]."
Now, Mm. Speaker, the funding was to go to those who receive public health benefits, i.e., the most needy people in our nation.
I am pointing this out, Speaker Pelosi, because, you see, when I reflect that you are the mother of five children yourself, I wonder whether you consider them as things to discard as too costly under certain circumstances, or things you might have foregone if times had been rough or circumstances less prosperous for you?
Speaker Pelosi, answer this question: how is the Democratic Party true to its ethos and historical role as the working man's party in America, if the policies it propounds treat the families of the country's working poor as unworthy of expansion?
Speaker Pelosi, answer this question: are children luxury goods, the privilege of the wealthy?
Speaker Pelosi, answer this question: are children the playthings of the privileged, to be avoided or discarded if they become a burden on the state?
We love disagreeing, and we would love to disagree with you, but we can only disagree with you if you write to us at:
Of course, there are other reasons for writing to us besides disagreement. Have something you want me to see or maybe treat on the blog? Send it in. Appreciate all the fine work we're doing? Let us know.
A caveat to potential stalkers: writing e-mails in one's own blood is an extremely messy and inefficient business.
A caveat to all would-be correspondents: If you do write, we can publish it. That does not mean we will, though. We are reasonable men. If you want anonymity, just ask for it, and you shall receive it. Just remember: sign with your real name. The first thing we do is check for a real name. We delete all unsigned e-mails.
