Congress cannot seem to help doing things with big pricetags, some of them rather startling. As I frequently mention, the federal government has no money of it’s own, which doesn’t stop them from thinking of our tax dollars as their own available funds. And that is why we really do have to ride herd on them carefully. This headline, however, from National Review, startled me.“House Democrats Pass Bill to Pay for Abortions around the Globe with U.S. Tax Dollars.”

I don’t know if you are pro-abortion or anti-abortion, but the idea that we just have to pay for the rest of the world’s abortions seems a bit much! What can they possibly be thinking? There are many Americans for whom abortion is deeply offensive, for many on a religious basis. And it is a serious matter not to be treated lightly. We vote for our senators on a statewide basis, but the representatives on a district basis, so we have a little more control over the representatives. Do they think the world is getting overpopulated? And if so, who appointed them?

I cannot imagine why they would think this a proper use of tax dollars. If you are offended, let your representatives know. If you don’t know how, scroll down a ways, I explained in an earlier post just how to write to your congresspeople. They get back in Washington DC and politics seems to stop being responsible to the wishes of their districts, and more just a political thing. subject to party politics rather than their states and rather than what is correct for the nation. Granted, they are only human, just like the rest of us, and imperfect, but really!

When they are in the nation’s capitol, they are inclined to start thinking of themselves as more important than they are, and more entitled than they are, and we have to keep an eye on them! And let them know that we are, indeed, keeping an eye on them.
