Fed.Gov: Not Killing Babies Will Cost Money, Amnesty Will Bring in Money

If you want to watch the moral implosion of a nation happening live, look no further than Obama’s repeated claims that SuperAmnesty for 12 million illegal aliens will actually help the economy, while the CBO is claiming that not killing babies will be a net loss.
First, the New York Times, Obama’s paper of record, has an interview with him where he repeats the bizarre claims that illegal alien amnesty will fix the economy, the Keystone pipeline will not create jobs and there are no American troops at Baghdad Airport.
“Immigration reform actually squarely fits into what I’m discussing right now. As I indicated before, we know the economy will grow faster if we get immigration reform done. We know that Social Security will be shored up if we get immigration reform done.”
It takes a lot of dynamic scoring to make that happen. But while we have to dynamically score illegal aliens, there’s no dynamic scoring for American babies.
CBO recently reported that, if passed by Congress, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would cost the government $225 million over the next 10 years by allowing children to be born instead of aborted.
The CBO says killing children will save the government money in healthcare costs and expenditures in welfare and other social programs.
The Orwellian implications of the CBO’s report are terrifying. It first assumes each and every child born as a result of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will be a failure and thus a burden on society.
It’s interesting that we can use dynamic scoring to try and pretend that illegal alien amnesty will somehow be a net benefit, but there’s no dynamic scoring when it comes to abortion. Bringing in half the continent’s criminals has to be scored dynamically, but killing babies requires no dynamic scoring.
This isn’t just a reflection of bias, but of a society’s decaying values under a government that cares about illegal aliens, but cares nothing about American children.
