Those of us wondering about the thinking and strategy behind how Montana TEA Party Republican Bob Wagner makes his unique decisions need do so no longer, as he explained his tactics to his colleagues last Friday during an official debate in the Montana Legislature.
To sum it up on in one word “science.”
Rep. Bob Wagner: you’re familiar with him from his birther interview on CNN (as is much of America). Whatever else you might say about the man, it’s hard to deny that he’s smart and literate and can express his thoughts well in the best English
The actions Wagner describes certainly must be true as Wagner would never lie on the floor of the House of Representatives–especially when making his case to cut core essential services that waste valuable taxpayer dollars on food for the poor, housing, education programs, public safety, and other things those taxpayers are in constant need of.
Wagner disclosed his actions during a debate on family planning funding (most of which comes from the federal government, not Montana) to allow the availability of preventative health care on a sliding scale based on ability to pay so that responsible citizens can prevent unintended pregnancy, reduce teen pregnancy, lessen the need for abortion, get tested early for cancer, and other responsible behavior. Watch and learn.
