Christian Coalition's Michele Combs Comments on Komen's Reversal on Planned Parenthood Funding
Offering its apology, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure announced today it is changing its mind and will continue financial grants to the abortion-provider Planned Parenthood.
"We apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women's lives."
Those were the words of Komen Foundation founder Nancy Brinker as she cited "distress" at the "presumption" that the breast-cancer awareness charity succumbed to political pressure from pro-life groups in making its decision earlier this week to cease awarding grants to Planned Parenthood...

Senator Rand Paul Out to Put an End to Corrupt Revolving-door Abuse in Government
The son of presidential candidate Ron Paul, a United States Senator from the state of Kentucky, Republican Rand Paul, has an outstanding amendment which will bar revolving-door corruption in federal loans; a practice which has been rampant during the Obama administration. The Paul Amendment which will be attached to the “Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act” would bring an end to the revolving door between federal employees and companies lobbying for federal funding of loans.
Senator Rand Paul had this to say on the Senate floor yesterday regarding his legislation: “This will allow this bill to apply to the Administration, and I don't believe people who are multimillionaires and billionaires should use the apparatus of government as was used in the loans that were given to Solyndra by someone who is profiting off of their relationship and ties to the President, profiting off of people who used to work for these companies now, who are now employed in the administration and using these connections to get taxpayer money to go to private individuals”...

GOP Policy Chairman Price Condemns Obama’s 4th Trillion Dollar Deficit
It is beyond comprehension that Barack Obama is presiding over a federal government whose budget is over a trillion dollars for the 4th year in a row, i.e. during each of Obama’s 4 years in office. The Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday announced that it projects an annual deficit in excess of $1 trillion for the fourth consecutive year alongside weak economic growth and high unemployment. On the other hand, it is interesting to note that one of the Republican presidential candidates has promised, that if elected president, he would cut one trillion dollars from the federal budget during his first year.
Congressman Tom Price, a medical doctor from Georgia, and the chairman of the House of Representatives’ Republican Policy Committee said this about the abominable news which came out of the Congressional Budget Office Tuesday: “The size and scope of the fiscal challenges facing our nation are tremendous, and the American people expect their representatives to put forth bold and honest solutions to turn this nation around and get the spending under control. Another year and another trillion dollars in debt ought to be another reminder to President Obama and his Democrat colleagues that the country cannot afford more failed fiscal and economic policies. More of the same – like what the president continues to offer – will result in more of the same debt, doubt, and despair hanging over our economy".... (READ MORE)
