20 minutes ago WASHINGTON - Anything but jubilant, President Barack Obama awkwardly kept a promise Wednesday he made to ensure passage of historic health care legislation, pledging the administration would not allow federal funds to pay for elective abortions covered by private insurance.
Unlike Tuesday, when a beaming Obama signed the health care law in a nationally televised ceremony interrupted repeatedly by applause, the White House refused to permit coverage of the event. It occurred in the Oval Office in the presence of a small group of anti-abortion Democratic lawmakers who had extracted the commitment over the weekend. The president supports abortion rights.
The political maneuvering occurred as the FBI announced it was investigating threats received by about 10 Democratic lawmakers in recent days in apparent connection with the intensely controversial health care law.

“ensure passage of historic health care legislation...”
They can’t help themselves...it was HISTORIC...well, so was Pearl Harbor, you awholes.
I am pretty sure they will find a loophole to wiggle around this
Vain, touchy little thing, isn't he? Nobody likes paying up, but when the time comes, be a man about it, Dumbo.
Just can't bring themselves to say "pro-life", can they?
He did it in quiet and among those alleged oxymoron-ridden “pro-life” Dems because he, as with many Constitutional lawyers and scholars know: the EO does not trump law and the law was passed Sunday night.
Stupak and his gang are not “pro-life” and for he and them to assert otherwise is flat out and simply a LIE!
IIRC, doesn’t this signature amount to squat since an EO cannot override Congressional legislation enacted into law?
Plus, don’t they give millions to Planned Parenthood anyway, which uses the money to fund abortions?
I figure if the NAGS and the other baby killer organizations really believed this had any teeth, they’d be outside the White House with their “NARAL” signs, screaming like the harpies and banshees they are.
What is the wording for this executive order?
And, there is the loophole, who or what determines what is elective abortions?
Definitely NOT a big $%@#ing deal...
OBOZO doesn’t like being photographed or Televised while physically and officially paying a Bribe! It could prove incriminating!!.......:-)
“All threats and incidents directed against members of Congress are taken seriously and are being investigated...”
All the while we inform ourselves about your direct, unconstitutional ACTIONS against the American people—YOU TRAITORS!
This congress represents A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER to OUR Republic, and thus our way of life.
As the American Declaration of Independence in 1776 expressed it, natural law taught that the people were “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights” and could alter or abolish government “destructive” of those rights.
He said he was a christian.!!! A bold face liar to america
He signed it in invisible ink. He wants abortion and he wants us to pay for it.
It must really pain him to sign something like this. Saving unborn babies is SO against everything he stands for.
Man.... it is going to be one Helluva lot of turnover in DC in November.
Here is the loophole:
from the article...
“pledging the administration would not allow federal funds to pay for elective abortions covered by private insurance”
This means that federal funds will pay for for any abortion that isn’t covered by insurance. Therefore all abortions will be paid for.
0bama is extremely EVIL!
