Vice President Joe Biden again mistakenly tells the truth.
Biden, speaking in China yesterday, says he understands their need for forced sterilizations and forced abortions, according to The Weekly Standard.
I’m warning you -hold onto your lunch. It gets worse from there.
What we ended up doing is setting up a system whereby we did cut by $1.2 trillion upfront, the deficit over the next 10 years. And we set up a group of senators that have to come up with another $1.2 to $1.7 trillion in savings or automatically there will be cuts that go into effect in January to get those savings. So the savings will be accomplished. But as I was talking to some of your leaders, you share a similar concern here in China. You have no safety net. Your policy has been one which I fully understand — I’m not second-guessing — of one child per family. The result being that you’re in a position where one wage earner will be taking care of four retired people. Not sustainable.
So hopefully we can act in a way on a problem that’s much less severe than yours, and maybe we can learn together from how we can do that.
My goodness, it’s almost like this administration views babies like a punishment or something.
I’m sure we can all expect massive outrage from feminists in 3…2….1….er…uhm…maybe I should start with a higher number?
Update: The more I think about this the more horrified I become. It’s bad enough to stay silent on human rights issues because we essentially owe China a gazillion dollars but to call this barbarism understandable is just horrible.
