Pennsylvania has become the first state to receive funding for federally funded abortions. According to Red Orbit, Pennsylvania will receive $160,000,000 which will directly fund abortions through the high risk insurance pool. This was authorized by the same Obama administration who came out with the unenforceable executive order that they said would prevent abortions from being federally funded. We knew that was a lie.
Blanche Lincoln, on her website, in town hall meetings, and interviews, promised that she would not vote for any measure that would allow for abortions to be federally funded beyond what the Hyde amendment would allow. Here’s Blanche’s statement regarding abortion from last year:
The Health Care Reform Bill adopted by the House Energy and Commerce Committee (H.R. 3200) includes a provision that explicitly prohibits federal subsidies to any health plan that chooses to cover abortions beyond the Hyde Amendment restriction. Finally, I will not support a health care plan that allows federal funding of abortions beyond the Hyde Amendment.
If you remember the long debate of last summer, there were plenty of people from Sarah Palin to James Dobson who warned us repeatedly that Obamacare would allow for federally funded abortions. We knew…it’s kind of hard to believe that Blanche Lincoln couldn’t figure out that this is what would happen.
Pennsylvania is just the first state. Other states are following suit and will be receiving their money soon-(money that we don’t have by the way).
If you are tired of politicians pushing their social agendas, spending money that they don’t have, and then lying about it on top of everything else, make sure that you send a message, loud and clear this November!
SEIU (Service Employees International Union) thought that they could buy the Democratic Senate primary race in Arkansas. They thought that by dumping $10 million dollars into the state of Arkansas that they could simply decide who would be the candidate on the Democrat’s ticket.
They nearly did……………Blanche Lincoln only won the run-off by a few percentage points.
SEIU has had the largest presence in the White House with their former leader, Andy Stern, visiting the White House more than any other person in Obama’s first year in office. The power and influence that they have over the President is dangerous and obvious in the progressive, liberal policies that they, and consequently the President have espoused. All you have to do is look at the President’s domestic agenda to see the fingerprints of SEIU.
I don’t support Blanche Lincoln at all. However, I am glad that she won the run-off. Arkansas elections should be decided by Arkansans, not by D.C. based big unions. Maybe…(but I doubt it)…they will think twice before trying to buy the next election. The positive outcome in all of this? SEIU and the others are ten million dollars lighter…and that, my friends, is priceless!
The cost of buying the Senator from Louisiana’s vote? 300 million dollars.
The cost of buying the Senator from Nebraska, Ben Nelson’s vote? 500 million dollars.
The cost of seeing their faces when they are voted out by angry constituents? Priceless.
No, this isn’t the script of a commercial, this is actually happening. Senators are lining up for payoffs for their states in exchange for voting for the still to be seen Health Reform Bill in the Senate. If you live in Arkansas, don’t let Blanche Lincoln cast her vote without hearing your voice. And this is my warning to our readers: If this bill does actually pass (and I think that Harry Reid will make sure that he buys enough votes to make it pass); then watch out for the conference hearing on the bill-they aren’t through trying to sneak things by the American people. Now a warning for Congress: you vote for this bill and other tax and spend bills like it at your own peril. The American people will not forget and we will be lining up at voting booths ready to vote you out!
