Senator Tim Scott really leveled a strong rebuke at Biden’s Treasury Secretary today over her comments claiming women need to murder their babies in order for the economy to do well.
Scott starts off by telling Secretary Yellen that her comments on abortion are ‘troubling’ and asked her “did you say that ending the life of a child is good for the labor force participation rate?”
Before letting her answer he then quoted her saying “ultimately, increasing access to abortion and reproductive healthcare allows for our labor force participation rate to continue to increase, that denying women access to abortion increases their odds of living in poverty or need for public assistance…”
Scott then told her that framing the issue of abortion this way, in terms of the labor force participation rate and economic stability, is callous and harsh:
Of course Yellen responds with the same liberal arguments about women having ‘unexpected pregnancies’ and how raising a child won’t allow them to enter the labor force or something.
Scott let her repeat this garbage before stopping her at the end and dropping this truth bomb on her: “I’ll just simply say that as a guy raised by a black woman in abject poverty, I am thankful to be here as a United States senator.”
Holy cow! That was epic.
What Scott is telling Yellen, in not so many words, is that what she’s saying is that his life shouldn’t matter more than ‘economic stability’. Scott is telling her that he was raised by the very kind of woman that Yellen believes should be aborting their children so they can join the labor force, and he’s pointing out that if his single mother followed that horrible advice, he wouldn’t be here.
I know Scott didn’t raise his voice or make a scene like some, but that was a really powerful way of pointing out the absurdity of her argument. In fact it was so powerful you can expect the garbage media to completely ignore it.
