Obama to Sign Executive Order in Private
NYT ^

Posted on 03/23/2010 7:32:28 PM PDT by Chet 99

There was plenty of hoopla in the East Room of the White House on Tuesday when President Obama signed his health care bill into law. But when Mr. Obama signs an executive order that secured the votes of anti-abortion Democrats, he will do so in private.

The White House announced Tuesday evening that Mr. Obama would sign the order — which it said reaffirms the health bill’s “consistency with longstanding restrictions on the use of federal funds for abortion” — in the Oval Office on Wednesday afternoon.

The order, negotiated Sunday afternoon as the House was entering the final stages of debate on the health care bill, bars the government from spending federal money to pay for abortions through plans offered on the insurance exchanges created under the measure. The deal swayed about a half-dozen anti-abortion Democrats, led by Representative Bart Stupak of Michigan, to support the bill, assuring its passage.

WTF
not even on the same day. STupak got punked. in private.
oh that’s right He didn’t want any stories about said executive order ( which
is unconstitutional according to Steve King) to
overshadow this day. Maybe we should file suit against the EO?! THat’s
another idea for a lawsuit against this!

A day that will live in infamy.

Doesn’t matter what he uses to sign it. An executive order does can’t alter a law. Once healthcare is law he can’t change it.

An executive order can’t nullify a law passed by congress. The entire rat party is filled with stupid dorks.

Why couldn’t anyone in the media ask Obama or any of his cronies what their opposition was to the Stupak language if the Senate bill did, in fact, prohibit abortion coverage? Of course, we know why they didn’t.

He will write it on toilet paper next to the white house loo. Then Pelosi will wipe her ass with it and flush it down the toilet. And the pipe will go directly to Stupak’s office.

He's already signed it, rescinded it, and sealed the records of it being signed and rescinded.

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.

He’s embarrassed to provide such an open gesture on behalf of the unborn.

What a guy. /s
