    He said on Saturday that "abortion" concerns by those that are against abortion and do not want "elective" abortions paid for with tax payer dollars, are concerns that are unfounded as NO WHERE IN THE BILL is abortion itemized as an approved procedure in the bill. He continued by adamantly saying "it is no where to be found in the draft of the bill"...and people walked away saying "see...the right wing loons are nuts and fear mongerers"....

    However...nowhere in the bill is "heart surgery" itemized as an approved procedure..and no where in the bill is "liver transplant" itemized in the bill.;

    Actually.....the only things itemized in the bill are things that would NOT be covered by the plan.

    So the man did not lie...he simply used words to fool people into thinking one thing, when in fact it is another.

    He has been doing it for two years.

    The good news is that he can't make up his own bullshit on the fly.

    Almost any time he gets caught out of the presence of TOTUS, he has the innate ability to find a flaming bag of poo and jump on it.

    True...but the bottom line is this...

    The charlaton assumes the votying American is naive and he is capitalizing on such assumed naevety.

    It started back in July of 2008 when he tested the waters.....he siad "are you better off now than you were 8 years ago"...and people bit and said "no"..

    Meanwhile....at that point, EVERYONE I KNEW was better off following the 7 years of prosperity.

    He saw how easy it is to convince people of whatever he wants to.

    Sadly...he is correct.

    That he has been handed a new talking point doesn't mean that he has read the bill, nitwit.

    US Law (Hyde Ammendment) currently prohibits public funding for abortion. Nowhere in the bill does it provide for abortion coverage.

    I thought Obama was the nitwit...remember he cant think on the fly, yet he is now a master wordsmith? A manipulative genius?

    Nitwit indeed. :doubt:

    Wanna bet that there isn't some nebulous language in that 1200-odd pages, that isn't ripe to be "interpreted" to mean that abortions will be fully funded??

    I sure wouldn't.

    Factcheck.org says abortion is covered. Should we report them to the "snitch czar"?
