Remember when Obama told the joint session of Congress in his speech:
And one more misunderstanding I want to clear up — under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions, and federal conscience laws will remain in place.
Well, it looks like Obama wasn’t lying (as Joe Wilson loudly claimed.) Obama was simply referring to a pretend bill that nobody’s ever actually written and exists only in his head. See. And you thought he was lying.
CNS is reporting:
Rep. Bart Stupak (D.-Mich.) told CNSNews.com that President Barack Obama told him in a telephone conversation that when he said in his Sept. 9 speech to a joint session of Congress that “under our plan no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions” he was not talking about the actual bill drafted in the House but about the president’s own health care plan—which has never been written.
“I don’t know if it is a game of semantics or what,” Stupak said of Obama’s nationally televised declaration to Congress that the health-care plan will not allow federal funding of abortion…
Wow. The brazenness of it all is just disturbing.
This whole thing might just come down to Obama vs. Stupak. In Stupak, we may be looking at a modern day profile in courage. The entire weight of the Democratic Party is sure to lean on him in coming weeks. Let’s hope and pray that he can stand up to it and hold to his pro-life convictions.
