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.

Oh, please. This constitutional messiah knows that an executive order will not overrule the law of the land—and stupid knew it too.
....and the willing state media is letting everyone know that Obama doesn’t like to do this but must keep his promise. So nice to have the media love our President for a change...
I believe the prohibition applies to “private insurance,” which will be driven out of the market in favor of “public” insurance that will provide mandatory coverage of abortions.
I pray it is so... I hope that it is so... but I have grave doubts.
“Man.... it is going to be one Helluva lot of turnover in DC in November.”
And there are a Helluvalotta new rooms being built in Hell right this very minute too! ;)
Instead, they will mandate that all private insurance policies cover abortion. And then there are those pesky non-elective abortions that Planned Parenthood doctors deem necessary for the health of the mother.
Um what about the billions of federal dollars that fund Planned Parenthood, the BIGGEST provider of abortions?!!!!
He'd look more like a man if he'd just suck it up and gracefully keep his promises in the public limelight instead of hiding and sulking about it.
He’ll probably be even quieter when he signs the E.O. lifting the ban.
Not according to this....
Obama Admits He Is A Muslim
It’s about 10 minutes, it will turn your stomach, but is well worth watching. People need to know where he’s coming from.
Did Present Obortion sign it on an Etch-A-Sketch, so he could erase it 5 minutes later?
..and he will probably quietly unsign it also!
Totally unconstitutional, an EO has no authority to change a law.
ELECTIVE IS the key word. None of them will be elective, trust me.
I used to work at a big insurance company when “termination of pregnancy” began to be covered and the provider was required to file the claim with a diagnosis code. They would use bogus ones like : fetal distress or maternal pathology....but they could NEVER use the word elective or the claim would be denied.
“What is the wording for this executive order?”
“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.”
Of course. What a shame for them to defend babies against the slaughter. Unbelievable. Forget about shame, it’s a sham.
Wow, brutal. That’s about the gist.
