It's a scene that's played out 6 times already. But that didn't stop Loretta Weinberg and her harridan caucus from again passing a budget bill that includes $7.5 million taxpayer dollars earmarked for the charnal houses of Planned Parenthood.
And with a stroke of his veto pen, Chris Christie nixed it for the 7th straight year.
Gov. Chris Christie rejected legislation Thursday [...] that would have restored $7.5 million in grants for women's clinics which he eliminated when he first took office in 2010.
In veto statements released just before 10 p.m. — two hours before the start of the new fiscal year — the governor said his actions "protected taxpayers" from the "irresponsible" spending by the Democrats who control the Legislature.
"Unfortunately, the Legislature has continued its annual ritual of attempting to pass additional unbudgeted spending for selected interests," according to Christie's veto statement.
The vetoes did not come as a surprise. This is the seventh time the governor rebuffed efforts to restore the $7.5 million that had been shared by more than 50 clinics providing health screenings, birth control and other heath services.
"Birth control" is of course their euphemism for abortion. Planned Parenthood is in the infanticide business. Period. All that other stuff is ancilliary, and ephemeral. Baby parts are profitable; condoms, not so much.
According to their audited financial statement, Planned Parenthood took in more than $230 million dollars last year. And they've got $284 million in net assets behind that. So they're not exactly poverty stricken. They don't need New Jersey's $7.5 million.
Or to put it another way, PP could easily cover that $7.5 million and restore those supposedly "vital" health services. That is, if they actually wanted to help women rather than play politics.
But politics it is, because to a virtue-signalling liberal the appearance of
"doing something" is always better than actually getting something done. So
we'll see you again next year Loretta. And you'll go 0 for 8.
