#35. I dont know where you're coming from but thats the process. Planned Parenthood IS the evil corporation the liberals on this website bleet about.
A budget is a law stipulating how money is to be spent. It's called the power of the purse. Funding is not an entitlement unless directed by law. If Congress passes a law saying funding shall not be disbursed to an organization or if they omit an organization from funding, then they have that right. Judges are bound to interpret the law. If a judge infringes on the power of Congress to write budgets, then Congress needs to exercise it's authority and remove said judge from the bench, because that judge is toying with divisions of power that have long been settled here in this country and have been a source of violent conflict the world over.
Punishment comes in the form of jailtime, fines, etc. withholding funds is a clear right of the government. The fact that this silly debate is being had is 100% proof that neo-liberals have no concept of settled law, no respect for constitutional guidelines, and should be nothing more than a small minority to check the excesses of the moderates and conservatives. In short, never, ever in charge.
