From 2006 until 2010 Democrats held the majority in both Houses.Barney Frank was the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee from 2007–2011. He has been the U.S. Representative for Massachusetts 4th congressional district since January 1981. The Republican took control of both Houses during the Clinton years and did a very successful job of making Clinton look good. Prior to that election,they hadn't held the majority in both houses for over forty years. They have not had majority of both Houses since,and even with the great results of the 2010 election they still don't.

You are so uninformed on planned parenthood.
Planned Parent hood offers a wide range of women health services from cancer screenings to contraception.
Republican legislatures have passed this requirement in several states backing by the RNC.
You are really not that bright. I'm starting to feel bad about kicking your ass here every day by taking advantage of a mentally challenged person.
why would any woman go the Planned Parenthood for cancer screening instead of going to a real medical facility???...

might as well visit a chiropractor.....

So, once a women has sex, it is your belief that government can demand it be done anytime when ever they think?
You are a Republican.
You got a reading impairment? "Women seeking abortions" is different than "once a women has sex".

I'm a registered Independent.

Don't most abortions require some form of vaginal intrusion?

Planned parenthood says:

ASPIRATION ABORTION — THE MOST COMMON KIND OF IN-CLINIC ABORTION

During an aspiration abortion:

Your health care provider will examine your uterus.
You will get medicine for pain. You may be offered sedation — a medicine that allows you to be awake but deeply relaxed.
A speculum will be inserted into your vagina.
Your health care provider may inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix.
The opening of your cervix may be stretched with dilators — a series of increasingly thick rods. Or you may have absorbent dilators inserted a day or a few hours before the procedure. They will absorb fluid and get bigger. This slowly stretches open your cervix. Medication may also be used with or without the dilators to help open your cervix.
You will be given antibiotics to prevent infection.
A tube is inserted through the cervix into the uterus.
Either a hand-held suction device or a suction machine gently empties your uterus.
Sometimes, an instrument called a curette is used to remove any remaining tissue that lines the uterus. It may also be used to check that the uterus is empty. When a curette is used, people often call the abortion a D&C — dilation and curettage.
An aspiration procedure takes about 5 to 10 minutes. But more time may be needed to prepare your cervix. Time is also needed for talking with your provider about the procedure, a physical exam, reading and signing forms, and a recovery period of about one hour.

D&E — DILATION AND EVACUATION
During a D&E

Your health care provider will examine you and check your uterus.
You will get medication for pain. You may be offered sedation or IV medication to make you more comfortable.
A speculum will be inserted into your vagina.
Your cervix will be prepared for the procedure. You may be given medication or have absorbent dilators inserted a day or a few hours before the procedure. They will absorb fluid and grow bigger. This slowly stretches open your cervix.
You will be given antibiotics to prevent infection.
In later second-trimester procedures, you may also need a shot through your abdomen to make sure there is fetal demise before the procedure begins.
Your health care provider will inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix.
Medical instruments and a suction machine gently empty your uterus.
A D&E usually takes between 10 and 20 minutes. But more time is needed to prepare your cervix. Time is also needed for talking with your provider about the procedure, a physical exam, reading and signing forms, and a recovery period of about one hour.

Sounds like a lot of vaginal probing going on during an abortion. So explain to us what's with their (feigned) indignation with one more probe?

Lol,,Why, you having a popularity contest or something? Funny you find this an important issue when it comes to being able to defend Romneys policies. Very telling. Maybe that's because he really doesn't have any yet. He's keeping them a secret too.
The Facts
Every year, the president releases his tax returns, so there is little mystery about the extent of his contributions to charity.
In 2010, for instance, the president’s taxable income was a little over $1.7 million, much of it from book sales. Line 19 of his itemized deductions shows that he gave $245,075 in gifts to charity.
That would be a rate of more than 14 percent.
In 2009, the president’s taxable income was about $5.5 million. He listed $329,100 in charitable contributions on his tax return and also directed the Nobel Prize Committee to give his $1.4 million prize directly to 10 charities (which meant he could not take a tax deduction for donating the prize).
This adds up to a rate of 31.4 percent of taxable income, again easily surpassing Huckabee’s standard.(Update: a reader correctly notes the percentage would be 25.1 percent if you added Obama’s Nobel Prize money to his taxable income.)
So, what’s going on here? A Huckabee spokesman did not respond to a query, but the best we can determine is that Huckabee is referring to Obama’s long-ago tax returns.
When then-presidential candidate Obama released his tax returns during the 2008 campaign, it was revealed that he began making significant gifts to charity after he started making serious money from his books — and after he decided to run for president.
http://abcnews.go.com/Site/page/president-bar...
President Obama reported earning about $790,000 last year and paid $162,000 in total taxes. He and the first lady donated $172,000 to charity, or about 22 percent of their adjusted gross income, according to their tax returns. The majority of the first family’s donations went to the Fisher House Foundation which provides scholarships to veterans’ children.
Whos name did he file under this time?

Obama intimidates Gallup Poll for revealing the truth about the election:

DOJ sues Gallup polling firm

August 22, 2012 | 12:28 pm

Justice Department officials joined a whistle blower lawsuit and alleged that The Gallup Organization, a major polling firm, intentionally overestimated the amount of time it would take to complete a job for the government and was paid accordingly.

“Contractors who do business with the federal government must honor their obligations to provide honest services and products,” said U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr. in a statement on the lawsuit.“Working with relators and federal investigators, we will do all that we can to act against those who illegitimately bill the American taxpayers.”

Gallup, known as one of the premier polling firms with respect to presidential politics, had contracts to conduct surveys for the U.S. Mint and the State Department in addition to other government agencies.

“According to the whistleblower’s complaint, Gallup violated the False Claims Act by giving the government inflated estimates of the number of hours that it would take to perform its services, even though it had separate and lower internal estimates of the number of hours that would be required,” the Justice Department explained.“The complaint further alleges that the government paid Gallup based on the inflated estimates, rather than Gallup’s lower internal estimates.”

The latest Gallup daily tracking figures show Mitt Romney leading President Obama 47-45.

You really are very stupid. YOUR party is always the ones ever election that brings up abortions...Then when you are in power never mention or attempt to do anything about it. What a herd of lying phonies all you baggers are. If Obama had one ounce of help we would be a lot better off, but stuck with the total mess you idiots left and strapped with the very worst Congress of all times it's amazing that he is able to get as much done as he has. You un-American coward.
