President Barack Hussein Obama is a liar. Congressman Joe Wilson said it best last night during the President’s speech to a joint session of Congress. There is no language in the current crop of bills explicitly outlawing government from funding abortion or illegal immigrants. Joe was right.
The liberals will point to section 242 in HR 3200 where it states that individuals must be lawfully present in a state of the United States to receive premium credits. This is the same language the liberals used for SCHIP. But what they are purposely leaving out is the fact that there is no language in the bill that requires proof of citizenship. All the illegal alien has to do is offer a social security number. At no point is it required by law that the social security number be accurate. There were multiple amendments voted down that would have mandated a proof of citizenship requirement. Republicans voted for the amendments and Democrats voted against them. No surprise there.
Federally funded abortion is the other topic Obama decided to point to last night in his speech. Obama said, “Under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.” That seems simple enough. But once again, Obama can’t back that statement up. Under current law and any future legislation, funding for abortions is legal unless explicitly prohibited in the legislation. Once again, numerous amendments were voted down by Democrats to explicitly prohibit abortion funding in the bill.
So either Obama is stupid, which I don’t think anyone believes, or he’s lying. Take your pick.
