Senator Scott Dresses Down Janet Yellen Over Claims About Black Women

I have long stated that the Democrat Party treats minorities like a prop.

Meaning, they use them when it is convenient to push a policy.

Need proof?

Look no further than the comments made by Secretary Yellen while she was on the Hill this week.

Abortion Needed for Poor Black Women

Once again, a high-ranking Democrat is insulting black women right to their faces.

Thankfully, Senator Scott (R-S.C.) was there to point it out.

Yellen was trying to make the argument that abortion is good for women in the workforce.

After Yellen’s initial statements on abortion, Scott chimed in, stating, “Just for clarity’s sake, did you say that ending the life of a child is good for the labor force participation rate?”

“As a guy who was raised by a single mom, who worked long hours to keep us out of poverty, I think people can disagree on the issue of being pro-life or pro-abortion, but in the end, I think framing it in the context of labor force participation, it just feels callous to me.”

Yellen, in part, responded, “One aspect of a satisfying life is being able to feel that you have the financial resources to raise a child, that the children you bring into the world are wanted, and that you have the ability to take care of them.

“In many cases, abortions are of teenage women, particularly low-income and often black, who aren’t in a position to be able to care for children, have unexpected pregnancies, and it deprives them of the ability often to continue their education, to later participate in the workforce.

“So, there is a spillover into labor participation.”

Scott replied, “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.”

As I stated above… minorities are nothing more than a prop for the Democrat party, to be used when needed, then discarded and/or put back on the shelf until the next time.

  1. HE IS CORRECT THAT THE DUMBOCRAPS USE WHOEVER OR WHATEVER THEY CAN TO GAIN THEIR CORRUPT POWER. BLACKS, BROWNS. JEWS. WHATEVER THEY FEEL CAN HELP THEM GET ELECTED ARE FAIR GAME. THAT IS JUST ONE OF THE REASONS I DISPISE THEIR BEHAVIOR AND LACK OF MORAL CHARACTER.

  2. How about the poor person using self control,or birth control?
    Isn’t birth control cheaper than raising a child?
    It seems to me, murdering the child, especially since so many places will do it for nearly no fee is far too easy & that’s something you’ve got to be completely heartless to consider it even an option!

    1. Many of those demanding an abortion are admitting that they don’t have what it takes to be a responsible parent and don’t want the responsibility. For others, they like to play without any responsibilities attached to their actions. Totally immoral.

  3. What in Gods Name does the Treasury Department have to do with abortions. She was directed by OBiden to bring it up as a financial burden on Black Women. The tax payers are carrying the financial burden for aborting 62,000,000 children. The Bottom of the Barrel OBiden gang are the absolute worse in American history.

  4. Let’s keep on paying for the mistakes of others. They want responsibility of decisions about their own bodies but are totally neglecting how to be responsible for avoiding an unwanted pregnancy. There are plenty of clinics that provide contraceptives at no cost to women and couples who want to plan their family so there’s no excuse to make a mistake and make us pay for it. I know because I worked for a while with the health department and in family planning and prenatal care and I saw just about everything there is to know about different situations. I’m not going against anyone’s right to make decisions about their own body but there is another life growing inside with a heartbeat at 15 weeks old and neurologically responds to stimuli and even if you don’t like it, you are taking away a human life. I thought liberals showed such empathy for everyone so what about a human life. Is that just trash because they say it is? I studied 15 years to save lives and I just don’t understand how we can just discard a life like it’s a piece of crap. I really can’t believe what is happening in our country today. Everyone is just me, me, and me. Nobody cares about anything or anyone else unless it is for a political reason.

  5. ALL PP centers are Near Minority communities IE Hispanic, Black, Asian, etc.
    Mostly near Black communities
    & Scotts right
