ObamaCare Subsidizes Abortions Not Only for the Poor

With socialists, the rhetoric is always about helping the poor. But we are already going broke helping the poor through Medicaid. ObamaCare goes much further:

Even taxpayers who refuse to buy a health insurance plan that covers abortions will be forced by the government to subsidize those who do.

“These plans, including those which cover abortions without any limits, will be eligible for federal tax credit subsidies when the enrollee earns less than four times the federal poverty level,” the [US Conference of Catholic Bishops] explained. …

This year the federal poverty level for a family of four is $23,050. Four times $23,050 is $92,200.

Thus, if the Obamacare exchanges were operating today, a divorced 38-year-old public school principal with three children and a $90,000-per-year salary would be entitled to a tax subsidy to buy an insurance plan covering abortions.

What kind of people will the federal government force to pay this subsidy?

Here’s one possibility: A married mother of five working as a teacher at a Catholic school, earning a salary of $35,000 per year, and doing her best to teach her pupils and her own children that God gives every human being an inalienable right to life.

Is it right and just and good for government to force one mother to help pay for another mother to kill her own child? No. It is just plain evil.

Not to worry; Obama promised to sign an executive order declaring that ObamaCare would not require decent people to pay for abortions. It was so ironclad, it convinced even the most principled pro-life Democrats to go along. Anyone remember?

    Isn’t it strange, when they aren’t talking about killing babies their line is always “For the kids”.

    Mass murder has always been a trademark of these degenerates.

    “Fun” fact, was talking with one of the infanticide promoters, and the ignoramus didn’t know that Life in a medical and scientific sense begins at conception. [Which purely based on DoI makes abortion unconstitutional]. Not only did he not know, but when informed, buried his head in the sand and fanatically claimed that it is “right wing” fact. What a good example of murderous narrow minded bigotry in degressives.

    It makes sense why the public school would produce such flat-earthers. 100% of dictators agree illiterates are much easier to herd.

    There is no such thing as a “Principled pro-life Democrat”. By their own platform, Democrats are PRO-ABORTION, so anyone with principles and a pro-life leaning CANNOT be a democrat. PERIOD.

    Here is more proof that America is on it’s last legs. Strong nations can not be sustained by weak, and abnormal, populations.

    (Breitbart) Taxpayers in San Francisco, California will now pay for “gender-switching,” transgender surgeries to “help ease the mental anguish of people who feel they are trapped in bodies of the wrong gender.” These operations will be covered under San Francisco’s universal health care program for the uninsured.

    The San Francisco Health Commission on Tuesday approved of these controversial operations; public health officials in the city and transgender rights advocates discussed how they could get procedures such as mastectomies and genital reconstruction surgery covered under San Francisco’s universal health care system for individuals who consider themselves transgender.

    These measures were approved even though San Francisco, under current Mayor Ed Lee, has had to slash local services and increase the local tax burden on residents to cover the city’s record $7 billion budget for the last fiscal year…

    Ted, kids, like women, gays, and blacks, have never been anything other than political props to Demoncrats and the left.

    While they have no qualms about killing babies, they will fight to the death to save a convicted killer, rapist, child molester, etc. from a richly-deserved death penatly.

    Democrats are immune to facts. An unborn baby has a heartbeat and brain function at six weeks after conception.

    Of course some democrats support “eliminating” some folks who have brain function and heart beat, especially if the costs to take care of them are excessive. “Take the pill” comes to mind.

    The ultimate problem with Obamacare (that the bishops have largely overlooked — despite the principles clearly laid out in Catholic social teaching), is that it violates the very core of natural and moral law. Nationalized health care, like everything coming from the falsehood of Liberalism, violates the heart Catholic principles. Take your pick of Leftist ideas — nationalized healthcare, same-sex “marriage,” abortion, euthanasia, gun control, and, of course, extinguishing religious liberty — and ask what makes them so loathsome to normal people. Each one, at some level, breaks from the natural and moral law. They all violate the truth and can never produce a good, life-affirming result. The very fact that Obamacare demands the payment for abortions and thus the smashing of religious liberty (as any nationalized health care takeover must), should be a glaringly obvious clue to the bishops that nationalized health care is a fundamentally flawed idea from the get-go. Lay Catholics should not have to teach their bishops the principles of their own faith.

    Each and every Leftist idea cannot succeed on its own. They are synthetic. They must be imposed from above because they cannot rise naturally from below. Their Utopia must be coerced. Obamacare, being forced down the throats of Americans, strikes normal people as wrong for a perfectly understandable reason. It feels like we are choking because, spiritually speaking, we are. Obamacare, like every coercive Leftist “virtue,” is a metaphysical absurdity.

    “5 Hour Energy” supposedly now not only can kill you but be used to trigger a spontaneous abortion.

    Wonder if Planned Parent Hood will being stocking up on the stuff.

    Im surprised Romney didnt produce ads showing how minority babies are exterminated at a much higher rate than whites. How many of them know that factoid?

  • Comrade J

    @ Sam Adams, very true. It’s a fanatical cult, the tenets of which bear no relationship to reality.

    @ St. Gilbert, liberalism is the modern day pharisees-ism. (or I should say Sadducees-ism). It is but empty rules of men, designed to circumvent God and His Word. It is designed to make people “feel better” without actually making them better, but rather in fact worse off both internally and externally.

    This very sad case coming out of Ireland is being used to promote unfettered abortion everywhere. Of course, the Catholic Church is being attacked by willfully ignorant secularists as well. This woman’s death is not due to too much Catholic interference, but not enough. Ireland’s mix of Catholic and secular laws are unworkable. Separating and isolating virtues will always produce madness in law and culture. I link the CNN article because of its undeniable spin and for the comments that follow.

    http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/14/world/europe/ireland-abortion-controversy/index.html

    On a day when a good Catholic friend’s very Catholic wife is undergoing surgery for an ectopic tubal pregnancy (perfectly allowable in Catholic bio-ethical principles), ignorant attacks on truth-based morality are difficult to accept.

  • Just a thought

    “Not to worry; Obama promised to sign an executive order declaring that ObamaCare would not require decent people to pay for abortions.”
    you do realize that “he that shall remain nameless” does not believe there are any “decent” people except himself?
