Liberal-left Democratic Party House leader Nancy Pelosi insinuates those annoying babies are a burden on the government treasury —on society, by logical extension. 
Liberal Democrat House leader Nancy Pelosi at left with Liberal Democrat Harry Reid, Senate leader.  “Contraception will reduce costs”!  Will help the economy by reducing burdensome baby costs to government!  On the flip side, Obama just OK’d federal funding for abortions.  Huh.

  The Drudge Report is reporting that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seemed to insinuate that “birth control” is a good part of an Obama stimulus package, during an interview with the ABC News’ left-wing politics show host, George Stephanopoulis this weekend.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi boldly defended a move to add birth control funding to the new economic “stimulus” package, claiming “contraception will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.”

Pelosi, the mother of 5 children and 6 grandchildren, who once said, “Nothing in my life will ever, ever compare to being a mom,” seemed to imply babies are somehow a burden on the treasury.

The revelation came during an exchange Sunday morning on ABC’s THIS WEEK.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?

PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children’s health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those – one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So no apologies for that?

PELOSI: No apologies. No. we have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy.
