What Obama won't tell you about the budget

There's a lot of fat which could be cut from the Federal Budget to be sure. Both sides of this contentious debate have pet projects which they want to stay in the budget,  but some of President Obama's reveal a lot of disturbing facts about his sense of priorities.
When a family is in financial crisis, they cut expenditures down to the bare essentials. Those things which are really necessary, and it often is very instructive to see what a particular family considers necessary.
The fact that the Pew Research Center said that the wealth of minorities has hit a 25 year low, thanks to the Great Recession (is that one step up from a Minor Depression?) the Obama Administration's spending continues to focus on obtaining abortions for the poor, not helping them maintain their families or keep their homes, oftentimes, their only source of investment.
From the first days of the Obama Administration, abortion has been the President's number one priority as revealed in this Life Site News article. 

President Obama struck down the Mexico City policy by Executive Order three days after his inauguration in January 2009. His administration also restored $50 million in annual aid to the UNFPA with no comment about the China allegations, and has ignored further investigations by the Population Research Institute (PRI) confirming the UNFPA’s continued complicity in the gross maltreatment of Chinese citizens.
Earlier in the month, the U.S. Catholics bishops’ committee dealing with social justice issues and Catholic Relief Services urged U.S. House lawmakers to reinstate the ban on UNFPA funding and the Mexico City Policy.

Despite USCCB's offer to work out a budget which respects the poor and human dignity, the President and his allies stubbornly refuse to defund the UNPFA or Planned Parenthood which received in taxpayer funds this year according to this article from the Pro-life Alliance, and operates 80% of its killing centers in minority neighborhoods.

Abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood continue to receive hundreds of millions of tax dollars every year under Title X, which subsidizes their overhead for promoting abortion as they divert more and more resources towards the killing of the unborn.   In 2010, Planned Parenthood revealed a total income of $1.1 billion. Taxpayers shelled out $363 million to pad the abortion provider's bottom line through federal and state grants and contracts (or 33% of its entire income).

This stunning expenditure for a for-profit agency which focuses on killing children reveals that Obama is using the budget debate to demonize Republicans as immoveable while protecting his supporter's interests. According to the Faith and Freedom Foundation, Planned Parenthood Director Cecile Richards has bragged on Twitter about her unprecedented access to the White House and attended an expensive fundraiser with the President last May for Texas abortionists. You are known by the company you keep, Mr Obama!
