David Ripley: When Did Obama Lie?

October 13th, 2011 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

Recall the drama and promises Obama made around tax-payer funded abortions and his grand scheme for health care: In September, 2009 Obama told an assembled Congress – and a watching nation – that “no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions, and federal conscience laws will remain in place”.

Then, to cover the nakedness of Bart Stupak’s sell-out, Obama issued an Executive Order repeating his deception, complete with pretty, official letterhead.

For those still in doubt about what Obama is actually doing with our money, there is the threat just issued by his office to members of Congress. If HR 358, the Protect Life Act, passes Congress, Obama will veto it.

What terrible things would HR 358 do? It would create a federal law stating that NO money spent by the federal government, including tax credits or premium subsidies under ObamaCare, could be spent on abortion. In short, it would make certain that the Hyde Amendment applied to all the many welfare crevices of ObamaCare.

Every rational observer should ask: If, as Obama has repeatedly claimed, the Hyde Amendment already protects American taxpayers – what’s the problem? Why drag out the big presidential ruler to whack bad congressmen? Because, obviously, the structure of ObamaCare is loaded with direct and indirect subsidies for the Death Machine that is Planned Parenthood.

The Protect Life Act is expected to be considered by the full House on Thursday.
