The GOP economic policy keeps MN in a deficit, and the DFL policy tries to structurally correct that. For those claiming liberals want too much spending and too much taxing (tax and spend), what do you specifically propose to cut? Don't just whine about the people on welfare, because those numbers just don't work. There are proportionately as many people on welfare now as there were 30 years ago.

The unintended pregnancies that PP reduces doesn't lower the number of people on welfare? Seems to me to be a great trade off, right? If a woman gets screenings and it reduces the numbers of breast and cervical cancers paid for by Medicaid it wouldn't be a cost savings?

So, the number of abortions performed paid for by taxes is a good thing? It keeps that future person off welfare, right realist? What about that person that got the abortion, how about once they have the abortion, they stop getting paid welfare?

I never denied that PP performs abortions. I was referring to contraception being cheaper than adding to the number of people on Welfare. Cancer screening saves Medicaid dollars by keeping poor women healthier.
