Obama to Planned Parenthood in 2007: “Reproductive care” is at the center of my health-care plan

posted at 6:27 pm on August 20, 2009 by Allahpundit

Yet another case of our savior being unable to get his story straight. Via Ace, here he is yesterday pandering to religious leaders. Mind you, even the Associated Press grudgingly admitted two weeks ago that the current House bill would use tax money for abortions.

In a late Wednesday conference call with several left-wing faith groups that supported his presidential bid, President Barack Obama claimed it is a “fabrication” and “distraction” to say abortion funding is included in the health care reform plans pending in Congress.

He said it is false to suggest that the government-run health care plan he favors would result in “government funding of abortions,” and that this is “untrue.”

And here he is two years ago using dainty abortion euphemisms to promise a group that already gets $350 million in taxpayer money each year that the cash will keep flowing under ObamaCare, per our little “partnership” agreement with God. Does this guy really not understand why so many people are suspicious of his intentions with health-care reform? He’s following the same shady pattern here as he did with the public option and single-payer: He tells the country one thing, then video of his ideological allies contradicting him starts to come out, then inevitably some older video of Obama himself contradicting his current position emerges. Given his hardline support for abortion and the sort of barely coded promise to his base that you see below, why would anyone trust him not to use ObamaCare to start paying for it? (Besides Doug Kmiec, I mean.) And given the inertia towards waste and bankruptcy in any government program, why would anyone trust ObamaCare to work at all? Fun fact: Increasingly, they don’t.

If anything sets me off, it’s someone mistreating the young or the elderly and the libtards target both. They are lower than whale dung and I’m ready to fight!

Don’t forget, President Wee Wee also mistreats another vulnerable group: Special Olympians. He is a real piece of evil work this one.

If the Republicans were smart, they would publish a list, and keep repeating it over and over again, of all the amendments they tried to attach to these bills and were soundly defeated by the Democrats in committee. Why would Dems vote against an amendment specifically saying no abortions paid for by the government? Because if the bill doesn’t specifically say “no abortions”, they are covered. We had to have an amendment to Medicaid that stated just that, “no abortions covered”, because it wasn’t in the original bill, remember?

Also, Republicans tried to get an attachment that all people applying for government funded health care would be screened by e-verify, a wonderful tool that is over 99% effective in weeding out illegals using fake SS numbers. Why did the Democrats also kill that in committee? I think we know why.

O/T, I read that Homeland Security is finally going to start using e-verify, after two attempts by Obama to block its use. If this is true, someone should be all over it.

Very apt analogy. Heck, even Slick Willy eventually got caught.

Is President Obama a liar?

HR3200 page 777 and on. Abortion is in there, no matter how hard he tries to lie his way around it.

The connection of the Progressive movement to the eugenics movement is well-documented. Few would argue that Ogabe is other than a progressive/liberal. Harboring thoughts of creating a better race of Americans through technology is not unusual for pure statists.

Allow me to simplify the message, if I may…

There are too many of you, and you use too much energy. My healthcare plan, and my cap and trade plan, will fix both.

More proof that this man is following the footsteps of all other leaders who have attempted to change history, manipulate, and manufacture a superior race.

Population control allowing only their vision of who are healthy enough to survive (Planned Parenthood) and eliminating the infirm (as defined by them and their insurance tables).

I am coming more and more to the conclusion that Obama is just a tool. I don’t believe he has the intelligence to come up with these ideas himself or try to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes. The man is dumb as a box of rocks. The powers behind the throne are, of course, Axelrod, Emmanuel and Soros. He is their puppet. And he is evil.

I utterly despise him.

Question, Where is UNPRODUCTIVE care in his view of health care.

I didn’t realize that abortion is now called reproductive care, how amazing.
