Democrats like to say stuff like this:
If even one child’s life can be saved, then we need to act. Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love.
But that argument only applies when they’re talking about banning guns, which they want to do anyway. It certainly doesn’t apply when their own sacred cows are at stake. Propose exempting the NIH from the government shutdown, and you get this:
CNN: “If you can help one child who has cancer, why wouldn’t you do it?”
Sen. Reid: “Why would we want to do that?”
Democrats like to cry “think of the children!”, but it’s all crocodile tears. They don’t mean a word of it.
