    Small Government huh?

    Under a GOP-backed bill expected to sail through the House of Representatives, the Internal Revenue Service would be forced to police how Americans have paid for their abortions. To ensure that taxpayers complied with the law, IRS agents would have to investigate whether certain terminated pregnancies were the result of rape or incest. And one tax expert says that the measure could even lead to questions on tax forms: Have you had an abortion? Did you keep your receipt?

    These one sided bible thumping far righters are sliding right into what history proves over and again, happens when religion is mixed with government. They will intrude on privacy and take away one freedom after another, quoting the bible and "praising god" for his guidance during the whole process.

    So vote repub by all means, they have your best interests at heart !!! Yessireeeeee !!!! Give them all the support you can to take away freedoms including the hard gained freedoms and rights of the gays.

    Our country is far more in danger of losing freedoms at the hands of fundamentalist christian far righters in the repub party than from any other source. If you don't believe me take a hard look at the history of the Roman Catholic church's involvement in European Government during the dark ages up through 1798. Take a look at the lack of freedoms where any other religion is involved in government throughout the world even today. Those who ignore history are condemned to repeat it.

    Well you know these repubs have debts to pay their far right evangelical christian teabagger supporters With this legislation they may add a few more jobs at the IRS to inflict this on the public, but the gains will be outpaced by jobs lost from the repubs efforts to pay their debts to the large corps. and taking away safety nets for the middle and lower classes. But as Boner says, if jobs are lost "SO BE IT"
