Said With a Straight Face

Nancy Pelosi has a sure-fire way to stimulate the economy:

"Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government."

No, no. It's true. She's the majority leader in the House of Representatives. Really. And she thinks federally funded birth control will help save the economy.

Just think how much stimulus we would get if we just ceased federally funded "family planning services."
