A number of Democrats are screeching about the “oppression” of taxpayer money no longer funding the killing of D.C.’s unborn and giving families a choice as to where they want their children to go to school. Presumably, the Democrats are fighting to keep D.C. children either dumb or dead.
The Hill reports:
– Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) and Washington Mayor Vincent Gray will join a protest Monday on Capitol Hill to urge lawmakers to scrap from the budget compromise riders on D.C. abortion rights and a school voucher program.
Organized by the voting-rights group DC Vote, the rally aims to send a message to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and President Obama: Don’t “sacrifice” the rights of D.C. residents to get a deal on the budget.
“Clearly, both our opponents and friends think D.C. is weak,” the group said in a statement Monday. “Neither thinks we are strong enough to fight back against oppression.”
“We may not have legislative power, but we have the power of the people, and D.C. residents refuse to be treated like second-class citizens,” it added. “D.C. is not weak. Tonight, we are going to fight back.”
How ludicrous is this? You’d think the federal government not paying to kill their children and giving the families money to educate those children would be a good thing. But not in the upside down world of the Democratic Party which is wholly indebted to teacher’s unions and Big Abortion.
Do the people of D.C seriously not see this?
As much as I’m disappointed in the budget compromise I am pleased as punch that Congressman John Boehner wrangled the party of death enough to stop funding the killing of D.C. children while also forcing Obama to reinstate Opportunity Scholarships for children.
