Savvy Smith Undermines his Own Work for Austism

By District 4 Coalition for Change

Publically Congressman Chris Smith Is a Champion of Autism but behind closed doors he undermines his work and his constituents. Please share this with friends and family that care about Autism.

Smith is savvy. His Newsletter arrived in the mail this week.

What Smith Omits from his Newsletter is what we should be paying attention to.

He left out his Signature Legislation HR7 that blocks private insurance companies and Flexible Spending Accounts from covering women's reproductive care. There was no mention of the Hobby Lobby and Buffer rulings in the Supreme Court in which he advocated for as well as helped architect the legislation and... NO MENTION OF THE RYAN BUDGET in which Smith VOTED YEA.

The Ryan Budget was warned as dangerous by the Autism Society.

Smith is a savvy politician, he publically supports Autism research and fund raising but when he votes ... he stabs his constituents in the back and undermines his own work.

HR7 Prohibits federal funds from being used for any health benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion. You have confused abortion with health care.

Flexible spending accounts are offered by companies and involve employees having dollars taken out of THEIR OWN paychecks and set aside for healthcare. Whether Chris Smith considers abortion or contraception healthcare is irrelevant to the law. He is essentially attempting to subsitute his personal religious ideology for that of an employee who does not share it.

Perhaps Smith should take up arms as an ISIS terrorist- they are also very adept at exacting a tax on those who don't choose to convert.

Chris Smith is trying to save unborn children or at least stop federal funds from being used to kill them. ISIS is killing children how can you compare a person trying to save children with a group killing children?

You can't compare them because the unborn are not yet born and living on their own.

A just born infant is not capable of living on her own. She is very much depending on her mother for at least the first few months of her life.

Smith is not a clergyman and it's about time he stopped trying to be a Catholic priest in the United States House of Representatives. His religion is his business and each of ours is our own business also.It's about time he learned to mind his own business.

There are laws about separation of church and state.There is also settled law with regard to abortion.

You don't have to be clergyman to Know right from wrong. At one time slavery was settled law. The 2nd amendment gives people the right to bear arms, no one expects the federal government to buy arms for citizens. When a congressman is opposed to paying for abortions people claim he is taking away the "right" to abortion.

This congressman should be opposed to all the money wasted by his fellow
do nothing republican pals in Congress and in the state he represents. About time he also realized that each citizen,regardless of gender, has the right to determine what is best for them in caring for themselves.

Leave the decisions between each individual,their conscience,and their doctor. Maybe the women of this country don't like the federal government paying for vasectomies either for males !!

Let's live in the world of reality 11:02. Denying employees of corporations the right to use their own flexible spending accounts for abortion or birth control will not save anyone's life. Do you really think if a woman wants an abortion, she will not have one because Chris Smith decides she can't access her own money from her account?

The only thing that can be accomplished is punishing a woman financially for exercising a legal right. That might make Chris Smith feel better, but it does zero as far as preventing abortion.
