Romney: I Will Do My Best to Overturn Roe v. Wade


Romney: I Will Do My Best to Overturn Roe v. Wade.

Mitt Romney, on Meet the Press this morning, voiced his full support for the War on Women, stating that it is his preference that the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.

I am pro-life and will intend, if I’m president of the United States, to encourage pro-life policies.”

How would he encourage pro-life policies?

I hope to appoint justices for the Supreme Court that will follow the law and the constitution. And it would be my preference that they reverse Roe V. Wade and therefore they return to the people and their elected representatives the decisions with regards to this important issue.

Isn’t that curious? Why just a few days ago, we had Karl Rove reassuring us that “no one is seriously considering ending abortion,”

Only In America Could This Happen The RICH Will Let A Poor Person Die From Hunger


Extreme Poverty Has Double In The USA Since 1990


By Pat Garofalo  on Mar 6, 2012 at 2:05 pm

According to the latest Census Bureau data, nearly 50 percent of Americans are either low-income or living in poverty in the wake of the Great Recession. And a new study from the National Poverty Center shows just how deep in poverty some of those people are, finding that the number of households living on less than $2 per day (before government benefits) has more than doubled in the last 15 years:

The number of U.S. households living on less than $2 per person per day — which the study terms “extreme poverty” — more than doubled between 1996 and 2011, from 636,000 to 1.46 million, the study finds. The number of children in extremely poor households also doubled, from 1.4 million to 2.8 million.

 

While extreme poverty doubled overall, it tripled amongst female headed households. Of course, there’s always the tact taken North Carolina Republican State Representative George Cleveland last week, who simply denied that anyone in his state lives in extreme poverty. As we noted at the time, “the 728,842 North Carolinians who are classified as living in deep poverty might take issue with that assessment.”
