    If you are against abortion don't have one. Simplest solution.

    My daughter's due date was originally December 28th but she wasn't born until January. I remember being kinda pissed at the time that I missed out on the tax credit.

    Do the gibsmedats even need tax credits and deductions? Make sure you double their food stamps with every fetus they carry, now we are talking!

    But seriously how can they enforce/control this? Don't thy need a name and SSN to properly credit child benefits?

    More tax credits is bigger returns for people who don't even pay tax. It's just another handout.

    Because encouraging struggling families to have more kids is good public policy......

    Handing money out is good public policy if your only objective is to get reelected.

    Republicans handing out money as a backdoor attempt to restrict or ban abortions is the antithesis of the "small-government" attitude they supposedly represent.

    Yep, that's exactly what it is. Start defining the tumor as a dependent, and it gives anti-abortionists more leverage.

    Oh, stop it. We're trying to have a serious discussion here.

    This isn't going to have any effect on the abortion rate or abortion laws. It's a handout to people who don't pay taxes in the first place.

    Then why are they making a big deal about benefitting the unborn? There's a reason they are framing this proposal to benefit fetii at 12 weeks old.

    It's funny how they are merely "lawmakers" in OAPC's story

    Let's try this one

    Republican lawmakers in Michigan, a state which eliminated tax credits for children last year, have proposed a tax credit for unborn foetuses of 12 weeks gestation

    Another gem from this article

    this would create a special new tax credit for unborn fetuses, after Lansing Republicans eliminated the tax credit for living, breathing children last year.
    Last year, the state legislature and governor eliminated a child tax credit deduction which went to 2.35 million children in the state, worth $57m, according to the Michigan League for Public Policy.

    Yup zero agenda to be found here. :rolleyes:

    To pretend they're pandering to pro lifers. The people who actually pay into the tax system and would appreciate the tax cut aren't having abortions.

    Actually, that's the proper way to lead the story. I'm shocked CBS did things the right way for once.

    There's no "pretend" about it. We just spent 6 months hearing about how Republicans hate gibsmedats and the whole "47%" mentality. The only logical reason that a Republican would be pushing this kind of benefit would be if it furthers their agenda.

    There's that get-out-of-scandal-free card again.

    Except for the fact that there's a sizable minority int he Republican party, especially in states like Michigan, that DON'T hate the parasite class. You have your sneaky agenda backwards here. This is a handout disguised as pro life pandering, not pro life pandering disguised as a tax cut.

    There's absolutely NOTHING that lawmakers can do to change abortion law. Stop acting like giving out money is somehow going to magically put 3 pro life judges on the Supreme Court.

    That would be believable if the same group that's proposing this bill didn't eliminate a bunch of child tax credits last year. Tell me how those are completely unrelated.

    Out of all the major media network media outlets, I think CBS is probably the fairest of them all. They were pretty relentless in their F&F coverage. That's why I was disappointed when they sat on the Obama Libya thing like they did.

    Like I said, they're pretend pandering. They know this bill means absolutely nothing, but it sure looks good to the flock.
