This is sickening.
President Barack Obama criticized Republicans with cheap shot after cheap shot yesterday in defending his budget ideas but this one really was just too outlandish to ignore. Obama said:
“One vision has been championed by Republicans in the House of Representatives and embraced by several of their party’s presidential candidates…This is a vision that says up to 50 million Americans have to lose their health insurance in order for us to reduce the deficit. And who are those 50 million Americans? Many are someone’s grandparents who wouldn’t be able afford nursing home care without Medicaid. Many are poor children. Some are middle-class families who have children with autism or Down’s syndrome. Some are kids with disabilities so severe that they require 24-hour care. These are the Americans we’d be telling to fend for themselves.”
Seriously? Barack “punished with a baby” Obama is defending children with disabilities when it’s his policies and his party’s embrace of death in the womb which has led to a 90% death rate for babies with Down Syndrome. But he’s their defender now? Gimme a break.
Is there any shame? Any?
