Bill O’Reilly recently stated on his show that the current health care bill would “require American taxpayers to fund abortion” and “we now have taxpayer money linked up with the termination of a fetus.”

Actually, the Senate Bill, before the House, forbids insurers from using federal subsidies to do so, except in cases of life endangerment, rape, or incest. It specifically states, “the issuer of the plan shall not use any amount attributable” to the subsidies created under the bill “for purposes of paying for such services.” The bill that passed the Senate requires insurers to collect a separate payment for such services so that federal funds are not used as O’Reilly falsely stated.

    This is sad because people do not take the time for themselves to actually read and do the research. And if that 53% that oppose it number is true, it probably fails to mention that half of those 53% probably oppose it because it doesnt go far enough and give a public option………I mean if you polled me right now I would say I dont agree fully with the healthcare bill, only because I dont think it is “good” enough. But that doesnt mean I am against Obama or this bill. I think this bill is better than what we got right now, so I want it to pass regardless. Its the same kind of talking point they are using right now too with the “deem and pass” vote in the house and how unconstitutional it is. However, a deem and pass doesnt mean that they will not have a vote nor the republicans fail to mention they used the same deem and pass technique 30 to 40 times during Bush’s term in office. Its only unconstitutional or unprecedented when the democrats do it?

    Actually, there was a point that it DID NOT include the legislation preventing abortions. Otherwise, why do you think Obama made an Executive Order prohibiting it? Again, folks, don’t believe everything you read any more than you believe everything you see on TV. Once again, way to misrepresent the facts. Don’t believe me about the executive order? Look it up.

  3. If you had actual real evidence of a conspiracy from FoxNews to lie to the American people, instead of being misleading over the truth, you might actually have something here on this site.

    Q, What else do you need? A million dollar donation to the Republican Governors Association? Oh, wait… they did.
