    results to campaign on, they will exploit every religious, race, class, & sex division to the max leading into the 2012 election. Their goal is to make the name United States obsolete.

      The question is whether the Dems can make them pay for it.

        Combine this with the Republican plan to zero out funding for family planning for the poor and you have a government that uses religious reproductive dogma to dictate medical policy.  As Joan McCarter's diary of the day before yesterday shows, it is part of the reason why the U.S. gets so little bang for the buck spent on medical care.

        The Republicans are, after all, the party of the 'Southern Strategy.'  With their goal of privatizing Social Security and Medicare, the whole country will be a plantation where people without significant private wealth work until they drop in their tracks.

      •  It's good capitalist practice -- more babies = $$ (0+ / 0-)

        A blatant attack on the poor gets more push back than a blatant attack on poor women, but affects poor families in general none-the-less.

        More babies is more people in poverty = desperate workers who work for less & don't cause problems. = more $ for building industry (apartments & homes), baby supplies, & etc. More babies = more future canon fodder & prison fodder.

        Big Business don't care if R or D is in power, most politicians of both parties are bought (even if there's a few more populous Ds than Rs).
