Mitt Romney, discussing his deficit reduction plan this week in Kirkwood, Missouri.
Romney’s spent a lot of time talking about math. So let’s do some math!
Planned Parenthood received $363.2 million in federal/state dollars for FY 2009. The U.S. budget deficit for FY 2009 was $1.4 trillion. So what portion of the federal deficit is Planned Parenthood’s budget?
Well, it’s 2.5943x10-4 or .025943% of the federal deficit in FY 2009. Clearly, that is a massive contribution to our deficit and must be eliminated.
So never mind the human consequences of the decision — like Romneybot™ is concerned with human consequences. The math simply makes this suggestion ridiculous, particularly when examining defense spending and Romney’s war boner for Iran.
