Come ON, government. Yesterday I find out Obama wants to completely almost eliminate the programs that help poor and elderly keep life giving heat and electric in their homes. And I posted about it too.

Lol this country. *eye rolls* I can't even get mad, I'm so disgusted with the Government....

Washington, D.C. – Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, said today’s vote in the House to defund Planned Parenthood is an example of how elections have consequences for women’s health.

Now I don't normally get into politics and stuff, but this is stirring up some bad thoughts.
The stupid old men in Congress do not rub elbows with the percentage of the population that needs Planned Parenthood's help.
They don't know what a boon it has been to the People.
I hate them.
