Contraception to reduce cost?
Sounds like eugenics vs the poor to me.
Rockefeller said he was worried about population control and how it ruins his way of life. I think if too many people are ruining the way of life, he should kill himself.

If YOU feel like its a good use of YOUR money, that's fine. The fact is, tax dollars aren't just YOUR money and what you feel is a good use of it may not be how other people feel. Its why these kind of things should be best left up to charities and the private sector than the government, so those of like mind can choose to do this without forcing those that don't agree with you on the notion or perhaps even the premise to also give their money.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.

So the lefties around here have no problem with what is effectively an argument for the government to reduce the population to help the economy?
BTW - what legitimate reason is there for the government to use tax dollars to subsidize contraceptives?
I'm all for birth control. But transferring control of contraceptive funding from state to federal is a bad idea. This sets precedent for further loss of state control over federal control.
States are in trouble due to failed spending policies and budgets. The government is already in enough trouble with the debt as is. The last thing they ought to be doing is spending more.
Obama is scaring the crap out of me. This is the 3rd federal power grab initiative and expansion of government he's put forth. Once states lose these controls its hard as hell to get them back.
p.s.- for once I'm agreeing with Hautey completely on this.
Please don't give them ideas. Because the answer is pretty much yes. There's no excuse for not using birth control except laziness. Even with my pitiful paycheck I can afford birth control. Heck I can even afford a diaphram and fitting for a girlfriend if needed.How much more affordable can FREE CONDOMS at your local clinic and $12 a pack at your local pharmacy get? Seriously do I have to deliver the condoms straight to their houses too so they don't spend money on gas or bus fare?

Ahem, why are the states subsidizing condom use in the first place? What legitimate reason exists for any unit of government to subsidize condom use?
