Good news: Four Planned Parenthood clinics getting more than $1 million total to help sell ObamaCare

posted at 7:21 pm on August 15, 2013 by Allahpundit

You’d think, after all The One’s done for them, they’d be willing to push his signature boondoggle gratis. Good lord. It’s not like the abortion business is hurting for revenue.

There’s still time left to comp him. Who knows? If they do him a favor now, maybe he’ll use his lame-duck status to help legalize those “fourth trimester” abortions that some PP employees seem to want.

Three state-based Planned Parenthood affiliates will receive a total of about $655,000 from the federal government to help consumers navigate their insurance options under ObamaCare…

Planned Parenthood affiliates based in Iowa, Montana and New Hampshire received awards to participate in the “navigator” program alongside disease groups, universities and Catholic health agencies…

Organizations on the other side of the ideological spectrum also received grants Thursday.

They included Ascension Health ($202,706 in Alabama and $165,683 in Kansas), the largest Catholic and nonprofit health system, and Catholic Social Services with the Archdiocese of Mobile ($20,750).

Read Ed’s post from Tuesday about the first of the four clinics receiving $375,000 to sell O-Care as “navigators.” They’re supposed to be barred by executive order from receiving funds under the statute, but that only applies to money for performing abortions, not money for general ObamaCare salesmanship. I’m sure that, as always, they’ll be highly scrupulous about segregating the totally fungible cash they’re getting from the federal treasury for its proper purposes.

Speaking of profiting from abortion, enjoy Vogue’s new profile of pro-choice hero Wendy Davis, who, despite her Harvard Law pedigree, years of service in the Texas state senate, and glamorous looks, didn’t land on the national left’s radar until she went to bat against a law that would have stopped people from killing babies late in a pregnancy. Vogue is, after all, a magazine for sophisticates and there’s nothing more sophisticated than that. I’m sure her post-feature electoral success will be every bit as robust as Jon Huntsman’s was.

Are Navigators anything like Czars..?

d1carter on August 15, 2013 at 7:36 PM

I just want to know the most financially advantageous date to abort my insurance.
 
Think anyone at PP would know?

rogerb on August 15, 2013 at 7:47 PM

obama is a liar.

Oprah is a liar.

The PP kills babies.

Death panels are Palin’s imagination.

Sibelius is Nurse Ratched.

The congress and their aids, the poor ones who’d leave their cushiony jobs…to go where exactly? are all exempt, the criminal charlatans who s/b Egypted.

What a great country.

Enjoy the destruction fools, all who brung/kept obama.

Hillary will take you to the next, and national/single payer health’care’.

Go shopping and eating, morons.

Your children will neer know. They’ll think that the USA and Zimbabwe are one and the same.

I hate to Planned Parenthood compromise its prestige shilling for the Obamacare train wreck.

Prestige???

Navigators who navigate the innocent to deadly shoals.

Arguably the best sarcasm I’ve ever seen on HA. Bravo.

Well, the sequester forced cancellation of White House tours, but not grants to Planned Parenthood, vacations, or flying Obama’s dog on Marine One to Martha’s Vineyard.

Somebody really needs to tell Obama he isn’t an African dictator.

Adjoran on August 15, 2013 at 8:05 PM

Ahhhh. So these are the navigators with the monstrous budget.
Guard your Children.
This just makes me sick.

Do not hold the delusion that your advancement is accomplished by crushing others.

And I’m sure that the government is keeping track of how that money is spent.

What language was Thuja speaking?

You have to understand…homosexuals like Thuja hate themselves thus they hate life. The support for abortion gives them some sort of weird feeling of retribution.

Yeah, who’d of guesses that liberal policies place an emphasis on paybacks, corrupt client service and redistribution to the well connected.
