I certainly would NOT support any nonprofit organization where the CEO makes $600,000 per year. It's so ridiculous and unnecessary. And on top of this, the American taxpayer is forced to give them millions of dollars annually. Stop the madness!
Okay -- so I'm sure you feel the same about the American Cancer Society, the United Way, the American Heart Association, the Prostate Cancer Foundation, the Boy Scouts of America, and the Alzheimer's Association, the CEOs of which all make more than $1 million annually. Shoot, the CEO of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation makes more than $2
million a year! I agree it seems like a lot of money, but a $600k CEO salary is actually pretty modest and responsible in the world of national nonprofits and charities.
And American taxpayers aren't "forced" to give
them millions of dollars annually. When women and men (yes, PP provides healthcare services to men, also) with Medicaid or Medicare healthcare coverage get physical exams, Pap smears, cancer screenings, family planning/contraception services and supplies, or HIV or STD screenings, Medicaid and Medicare pay for those services, the same as they would if those individuals got those healthcare services from any other healthcare provider. Is there something wrong with that? That's most of the Federal money that goes to PP. They also get some funding under Title X, which is a Federal program that provides funds to make family planning services available to low income individuals; agencies apply for grants under Title X and, if they meet the program's criteria, they get some money to provide those services. PP, along with lots of other agencies and organizations, including lots of state and local public health departments, meets the program criteria and requirements to qualify for grant money. Again, is there something wrong with that? Do you propose that PP somehow be singled out to not
be eligible for Title X funding, unlike all the other agencies that get money under Title X? Why??
