A KINSEY GAFFE:

Jeb Bush Causes a Stir on Women's Health Issues (Michael Barbaro, 8/04/15, NY Times)

Mr. Bush, a former governor of Florida, said the federal government should stop financing Planned Parenthood. He then veered off course, into a discussion of what could be done instead with the $500 million in federal funds the organization receives annually.

"You could take dollar for dollar -- although I'm not sure we need half a billion dollars for women's health issues," he said, "but if you took, dollar for dollar, there are many extraordinary fine organizations, community health organizations, that exist, federally sponsored organizations, to provide quality care for women on a variety of health issues."

He shouldn't have apologized.  There's no reason to spend that $500 million.
