The President Breaks Another Promise

President Obama's "new" health care plan includes federal funding of abortions.

He has broken another promise.

In his address to a joint session of Congress in September, President Obama told Congress that the country and the world:

"One more misunderstanding I want to clear up---under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions."

That was not true then and in his "new" plan he has revealed this week, it still isn't true.

The day after the September promise, Douglas Johnson, legislative director for National Right To Life, pointed out that the President's bill will indeed pay for abortions with federal dollars.

He explained how it will work and how the President and his administration is attempting to mislead the public.

Johnson said, "The reality is that the Obama-backed House bill would explicitly authorize the federal government insurance plan to pay for elective abortions and would explicitly authorize subsidies for private abortion insurance----and all with federal dollars."

Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life organization, said while the President and others are trumpeting an amendment they made as eliminating government funded abortions, it "actually allows it."

Johnson said it's "absurd on it's face, a political hoax."

Mitch Stewart and Addisu Demissie of Organizing for America, sent out an email yesterday on behalf of the President saying, "It's a plan that puts Americans in charge of their own health care, bridges the gap between the Senate and House bills, and adds additional ideas from both parties to fight waste and abuse."

One way to "fight waste and abuse" would be to dismantle the present administration at the upcoming elections before they completely dismantle America.

I have linked an analysis of the "new" health care bill as it relates to federally funded abortions. If you have time, check it out, it is informative.

Johnson told LIFENEWS in September, "Barack Obama needs to learn that the mere repetition of a verbal formula does not change reality."

Apparently neither he nor his leadership in Congress have learned that.

As the President was unveiling his "new" "new" plan this week, none of which stops massive federal funding of abortions, the White House announced the President's support to use the controversial "reconciliation" tactic to ram the bill through Congress. This action would eliminate the ability of pro-life lawmakers to filibuster and delay passage.

I doubt seriously that tomorrow's meeting will have any significant bipartisan aspect other than to be reported by the media as an honest attempt on the part of the President to create a bipartisan effort to help save the people and the country. An effort that was rejected by Republicans and pro-life advocates.

I hope for more, but am convinced that these are defining times for our country and communities. The decisions we, as citizens, make in the upcoming 2010 elections and those of 2012, will determine what America will be for coming decades.

Be prayerful. Be active. Do not be silent.

God bless you.

  1. BO is a narcissist and a pathological liar. Or he is practicing taqqiah. The latter is worse.

  2. Gary, I read your blogs everyday but never comment. Want to say they are great keep up the good work. We need what you do.

  3. I want to hear somebody in government say that God has blessed America even as it has been taking away his inheritance,
    the unborn millions through abortion. Are we being fair?

    Does God have a cause against America? Could he have one if he wanted to find one?

    What about how we have promoted homosexuality and pornography, or
    let some people try to keep him out of our schools and government buildings?

    Do we really want to separate our government from him? Can we really afford to do that? What might it cost us? Are we already beginning to pay the price? If America is being weighed in the scales of heavenly justice, how are we doing?

    How would you judge? Even though we can not earn his favor, we need it, and working against him doesn't work in our favor. How have we been paying him back for all the good God has done for America?

    Have we run up a long way in his books? I wonder what the accounts look like. Before we vote on anything, or busy ourselves on anything, maybe we should think about that.

    If we move God out of our government, who is it that might move in? Sometimes I wonder who it is that we allow to run things.

    Are there not some things to resist and other things to embrace? Isn't there a time for everything under the sun?

    I believe God knows our times.

  4. I don't think worshiping the climate or the things they call today "cival rights" is the way to save America. See Romans 1.

  5. Abortion for convenience is wrong. I can understand this. What I don't understand is the lack of empathy and compassion for seniors that that have to deal with the drug prescription do-nut hole.

    How can we call this country civilized when we target the our senior that are the most sick
    with something like the do

  6. 7:45 your comments stikes a cord to me, being a senior citzen. I take no meds. My Dr. respects my choices. Mostly because over the years, I have 'taken care' of myself. There are talks of expanding good healful living, to prevent onset heath problems. Personally I have turned my ostopinian(sp) to norma, via changes in diet, and yes, exercising. I have gotten rid of my heartburns via stop taking 'tums' (years ago, got a stone from them!) and ooh-let the tummy juises do their work! So many things we can do co 'correct' our 'owies', instead of runing to our docs all the time. Look on the net for answers. Get out daily, move that bod, it was meant to be moved--NOT to sit! Yes, more encouragment to our health, not meds!
