The FAMILY LEADER - one of those innocuous sounding groups that in reality is about as much about actual families as the Democratic Republic of the Congo is ”"democratic,” has been flexing its political muscle throughout the Republican Presidential Nomination process in Iowa. From getting the republican candidates to sign its Christian version of Sharia Law in “The Marriage Vow: A Declaration of Dependence upon MARRIAGE and FAMILY,” to pressuring Iowa Republican lawmakers to ensure that Planned Parenthood receives absolutely no state tax dollars. Not to burst the Fox News bubble created for the Republican residents of crazytown, but it’s a well-known fact that Planned Parenthood does not receive any federal monies for abortions. Planned Parenthood gets $6 million in state tax dollars for providing birth control and reproductive health exams to poor women, unlike the oil companies that can receive upwards of $41 billion a year in federal subsidies or that the US spent $700 billion in 2011 on Defense spending in 2010 to continue blowing up places we have no business being in.
