On Selecting Where Tax Dollars Can Be Spent: A Video on Hyde/Stupak/Nelson
Because I love anything Jay Smooth does. Oh, and because I’m not a fan of “I don’t want *my* tax dollars spent on X” arguments because there are a whole lot of things any individual might not want their tax dollars spent on for moral or other reasons. Like war, for example. The video below talks about the Hyde Amendment and the expansion of the “I don’t want my tax dollars spent on abortion” argument carried through Nelson/Stupak in health reform legislation. Feministe has a transcript and more commentary.
