Before you get so excited that you pee all over yourself:

WASHINGTON — The House has approved a Republican proposal to block federal aid for Planned Parenthood. (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41669274/ns/politics-capitol_hill/)
The 240-185 vote on Friday is a victory for anti-abortion forces led by Indiana GOP Rep. Mike Pence. He says taxpayer money should not go to groups that provide or promote abortion.
"This afternoon's vote is a victory for taxpayers and a victory for life," Pence said Friday. "By banning funding to Planned Parenthood, Congress has taken a stand for millions of Americans who believe their tax dollars should not be used to subsidize the largest abortion provider in America."
Democrats say Planned Parenthood provides contraception and other valuable family planning services, and that cutting off the money will make it hard for women to get such basic help.
Planned Parenthood provides services in hundreds of clinics around the country. Pence aides say the group reported receiving $363 million in federal money in its latest report.
The proposal is part of a bill that seeks to cut government spending this year.
The Democratic-run Senate has stronger abortion rights views than does the House, making it unlikely the House proposal will survive.

Yep, culture of life. Cut off the means for millions of women to have access to affordable birth control, thereby creating more unplanned pregnancies. Deny them affordable breast and cervical cancer screenings. Make sure they don't know how to use contraceptives, and even if they do, they don't have access to them.

Planned Parenthood has every right to raise private funds to continue their mission. They claim that public funds are only a part (I'm not sure of the %) of their funds. Let them hit up all their lib supporters for funds, should be plenty of money in Hollywood.

So is the answer more money? Will that cure the ills of unplanned pregnancies and care screenings? No way.....in Texas today, there are "millions" of people who QUALIFY for Medicaid and don't participate! Even HHS's own estimates for Health Care Reform estimate that 10% of the population will remain uninsured BY CHOICE.

As for finding contraceptives, almost every freaking gas station bathroom has a condom machine! Are you saying people are too stupid to find one?

What a bunch of drivel no one is denied anything. Its all about priorities, the "poor" can't afford anything but everytime I'm in the checkout line at Walmart I see the Welfare kings and queens talking on their smartphone with 2 orders of groceries, one that they can use food stamps on and the rest all the junk disallowed. If they can afford the other "junk" then they could use that money to buy the necessities. Get the rid of the fraud, waste, and abuse in the entitlements and help the truely needy, which is an extremely small percentage in this country.

THere is one foolproof method of birthcontrol that is free, keep your pants zipped. If you can't afford $1 for a condom you should be concentrating on where your next meal is coming from not having sex.

Buzz I doubt that even 5 percent of the women (more like girls) that go to planned parenthood are going to learn about screening for cancer. If they were really getting an education on contraceptives then why are there so many girls having multiple abortions? This is just another aid program for people who want instant gratification and then expect some one else to pay for it.

I thought you might like to know that each and every service you listed in this post is provided by your own state health departments and they are FREE.

I know my state provided family planning and contraceptives free to all women and children (with parental knowledge or consent) over 30 years ago. I know this because I served on the county board of health. I suspect most if not all states' health departments provide all of the services you listed.

Will they ever get around to addressing creating jobs? Or, just more legislation that will get defeated in the House?

While I applaud any attempt to cut spending it is apparent that they just want to Grandstand. Tax payers could save a lot more money if Congress were to cut thier Pensions and outrageous Healthcare Benefits.

When will we see some real cuts in spending and them leading by example?

From the article you posted:

“I had about six members on my side of the aisle and 12 on the other side of the aisle say, ‘Can you make that thing go away? You’re right, we should cut it, but I don’t want to take the heat for it.’ ”

Cowards on both sides of the aisle!

I don't know if there is a good return on investment or not. One issue is important, that the military has access young people for recruiting purposes. In a world where the left has disdain and loathing for the military, they protest them on college campuses, reject their offers to come to high schools, do you have a solution on the best way to recruit to keep out military vibrant? Is the nascar audience those that actually enlist in the military and provides the foundation for our future leaders, or is it some left wing radical United States hating group?

I don't really know...

Not apples to apples.

If they want to propose cutting military advertising, fine.

But to have someone in Congress direct where the money should be placed on advertising is more bad government. The decision as to where ad money is spent is better left to the private sector and professional Media Buyers than some politician. If NASCAR is where the military gets their best ROI on thier ad dollar then that is where the money should be spent!
