Posted on 02/23/2010 2:30:49 AM PST by schmootman
WASHINGTON, DC, February 22, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A new health care bill proposed by President Obama Monday threatens to expand abortion even more drastically than the health care bills stymied in Congress over the past several months, says the National Right to Life Committee.
The White House is threatening to ram the proposal through the Senate on a 51-vote majority using a tactic known as budget reconciliation. The process circumvents the need for a filibuster-proof 60-vote majority by placing the health care overhaul under the heading of a "budget" bill.
"Any member of Congress who votes for the final legislation proposed by President Obama will be voting for direct federal funding of elective abortion through Community Health Centers, and also an array of other pro-abortion federal subsidies and mandates," said NRLC Legislative Director Douglas Johnson in a statement Monday.

Conclusion? The bishops made a very high-stakes bet in their attempt to bargain with the devil. If they lose, which seems probable, they will have no one but themselves to blame for the new holocaust.
Enough is enough. Boycott the Combined Collection in April and the CCHD Collection next fall. Sign the Reform CCHD Now Petition. www.reformcchdnow.com
Catholic voters keep voting for Democrats. So much for their principled stand against abortion.
“Catholics, who compose a massive 67 million-person slice of the electorate, favored Democrats in Tuesday’s election by 55 percent to 45 percent, according to National Election Pool exit polls.} ( in 2006)
I would say a significant number of US Catholic bishops’ true religion is socialism. There were also a fair number of closeted types.
Deo gratias, the situation has improved a great deal in the past several years as the 60s generation has started to retire.
They gave money to ACORN as a community group that helped to register people that mostly voted for Obama.
You got to steatch it a bit to lay abortion on them.
I could create a Protestants voting for Obama helped support Abortion thread, which would be more on target.
It is too late for US Catholics to finally be demanding accountability and excommunication for Catholic politicians.
You don't lobby your local town to possibly hold a meeting sometime in the future to consider it change its speed ordinance in front of main street, while 51 cars traveling at 80 mph are approaching.
The sad fact is, millions of US Catholics vote (or have voted for) Catholic politicians like this:
Slightly more on target, true. But there is absolutely no stretch in what I’ve said. CCHD played a major role in putting the Democrats in control, and now we are all going to pay the price (literally) of abortion.
I disagree. Obama's views on abortion and BAIPA (Born Alive Infants Protection Act) were well known. They thought it was "social justice" to elect a man of color, even though he told us what he was going to do all along. Some of the Bishops raised the alarm, but the others just didn't listen. Then, they reacted with shock and alarm when the abortion sections of the healthcare bill became known.
This article is no surprise to me. Many catholics I know when discussing their religion to me are not deep Christians as folks of other faiths. They believe abortion is the right thing, they cling to evolutionism and they are good democrats.
You got to steatch it a bit to lay abortion on them.
You don’t have to streach at all. The Bishops openly supported Ted Kennedy while giving lip service to the Catholics in the pews. They raise money from the parishes and then work against them with ACORN, the unions and abortion and gay rights groups. More and more Catholics are finding out about this newest scandal.
“Many catholics I know when discussing their religion to me are not deep Christians as folks of other faiths.”
They are not Christians! Period!
SET THEIR LOCAL AND DC LINES ON FIRE!
Sen. Scot Brown's number is 202-224-5443
Capitol Hill switchboard is 202-224-3121
Lots of local demwit phone numbers on this thread.
Rename, repackage, rewrite it a tad smaller, and sell another pig in a poke.
Tennessee has joined several other states in trying to pass a Health Care Freedom Act. NO COLAs for granny, retired Military or retired fed employees. BIG NEW fees for Tricare for Life retired over 65 Military's secondary health ins. (DOD bill already passed, delayed but goes into effect 2011)
New Dem mantra: Woof, woof eat dog food granny....ala let them eat cake.

Obama says slight fix will extend Social Security
Health Care Rationing for Seniors Another Problem in New Obama Plan
TRI CARE FOR LIFE This from a google search:
This option would help reduce the costs of TFL, as well as costs for Medicare, by introducing minimum out-of pocket requirements for beneficiaries. Under this option, TFL would not cover any of the first $525 of an enrollees cost-sharing liabilities for calendar year 2011 and would limit coverage to 50 percent of the next $4,725 in Medicare cost sharing that the beneficiary incurred. (Because all further cost sharing would be covered by TFL, enrollees could not pay more than $2,888 in cost sharing in that year.)

Congress plans to block Tricare fee increases
By Rick Maze - Staff writer, Oct 7, 2009
Tricare fee increases imposed last week by the Defense Department will be repealed by a provision of the compromise 2010 defense authorization bill unveiled Wednesday by House and Senate negotiators.
The fee increases were announced on Sept. 30 and took effect on Oct. 1, but the defense bill, HR 2647, includes a provision barring any fee increases until the start of fiscal 2011.
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Bill Matz, president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the announcement of fee increases was shocking considering that the Obama administration promised earlier this year to hold off on any new fee Tricare fee increases until fiscal 2011.
President Obama and DoD assured NAUS and the entire military family earlier this year that there would rightly be no increases in any Tricare fees in fiscal 2010, Matz said. We took them at their word, and I cant believe that a co-pay increase like this was allowed to go forward, he added.
