Obama’s Fool’s Gold
Remember when so-called pro-life Congressman Bart Stupak made his stand for life, was praised by many, then caved in to President Obama and led 5 other Democrats, including Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper from Pennsylvania, to drop their noble stand for life and vote for, ensuring passage, of Obamacare.
Why? Because the President promised them there would be no taxpayer funded abortions. Even promising to sign an executive order to that effect. An executive order that seemed to be of no concern to abortion leader Planned Parenthood.
Now we know what most of us knew then. Sometimes the truth escapes the President.
That was then, this is now.
On June 28, the federal government approved rules governing $160 million in federal tax money for a “high risk” insurance program that will–-cover just about any abortion before the 24th week of pregnancy.
And this is happening in Pennsylvania, Mrs. Dahlkemper’s home state.
The Washington Times published a column which covers the matter fairly well. Please read the link for details.
The National Right to Life Committee has produced a study that absolutely proves that tax payer money will pay for abortions. And they say it isn’t through a “loop hole” in Obamacare, “It’s a canyon you can fly O Force One through.”
In that the program is completely funded by federal monies, not state monies, the federal government has avoided the state law (3215c) making state law not applicable.
The Times calls Obama’s promise “fools gold.”
Remember when Rev. Wright said he felt he had been thrown under the bus?
If Rep. Dahlkemper looks up this fall, she too, may see the under side of the “bus”.
The Times points out that many of her future constituents won’t even be born now, as a result of this program. And concludes, “That’s a pretty dark legacy for a congressional freshman who campaigned as a pro-lifer.”
It is also a dark legacy that we Americans elected this kind of leadership.
However, we cannot imagine the darkness, should we not make major changes in the upcoming elections.
God help us.
