08 Feb But we have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it…
Who could ever forget the classic statement of insanity from the mouth of the former Speaker, Nancy (I never miss an opportunity to rip off the dumb Americans) Pelosi when she stated on March 9, 2010, “But you have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it” (see video). American politics sunk to a new low in that very moment. To say her words were absurd and an insult to any thinking individual with an IQ above plant life is an understatement!
Now we are slowly learning what in fact is in the ObamaCare legislation, and it contains exactly what many of us thought, a massive governmental reach into our rights, freedoms and choices, especially choices of conscience and convictions many of us hold sacred, such as the sanctity of life.
Here are the sobering words of a former Democratic congresswoman who supported the legislation and now that we see what is, “in the bill”, has buyer’s remorse:
Former Democratic congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper, a Catholic from Erie, Pennsylvania, cast a crucial vote in favor of Obamacare in 2010. She lost her seat that November in part because of her controversial support of Obamacare. But Dahlkemper said recently that she would have never voted for the health care bill had she known that the Department of Health and Human Services would require all private insurers, including Catholic charities and hospitals, to provide free coverage of contraception, sterilization procedures, and the “week-after” pill “ella” that can induce early abortions.
“I would have never voted for the final version of the bill if I expected the Obama Administration to force Catholic hospitals and Catholic Colleges and Universities to pay for contraception,” Dahlkemper said in a press release sent out by Democrats for Life in November. “We worked hard to prevent abortion funding in health care and to include clear conscience protections for those with moral objections to abortion and contraceptive devices that cause abortion. I trust that the President will honor the commitment he made to those of us who supported final passage.”
The President will say or do anything he must to get four more years and then I can only say, LOOK OUT! Just my thoughts.
