The following comes from a press release issued by Congressman Chris Smith of New Jersey.
With a December 9th deadline for Members of Congress and congressional staff to sign up for Obamacare health insurance, U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (NJ – 04) released new evidence of President Obama violating pro-life laws and providing taxpayer funding for insurance plans that include abortion on demand.
“In the run-up to passage of Obamacare, Americans were repeatedly told and reassured by President Obama himself, including in a speech to a joint session of Congress in October 2009, that ‘under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortion.’ Obama even issued the infamous Executive Order that claimed, ‘the Act maintains current Hyde Amendment restrictions governing abortion policy and extends those restrictions to newly created health insurance exchanges,’” said Smith.
“Once again we see those promises ring hollow— what the President said simply isn’t true today . In the most recent example, 103 of the 112 insurance plans that Members of Congress and congressional staff are being directed to INCLUDE ELECTIVE ABORTION coverage. Only nine plans offered exclude elective abortion ,” Smith continued.
Congressional employees have until just Dec. 9, 2013 to sign up for an employer – sponsored insurance plan on the Obamacare exchange offered in the District of Columbia. Doubtlessly many congressional staff will — knowingly or unknowingly — sign up for these abortion plans marking a distinct departure from the Smith Amendment, a longstanding law prohibiting abortion coverage in plans provided to federal employees….

Why is this a surprise. The “Truth” — in the commonly understood usage of that word and concept — is foreign to President Obama, his Administration, and his Party, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. They want to have abortion included, in all of its forms, in all insurance offerings and options; without exception. Benefitting Planned Parenthood, as many have argued, was a primary reason for the development of ObamaCare. Get money to the abortionists, and they will help to get out the vote, and the money, for you. Just look at what was “debated” in VA, where, unbelievabley, Terry McAuliffe won the Governorship recently: “the Republicans want to take away a woman’s reproductive rights.” McAuliffe was essentially incoherent in arguing about issues such as economic growth, taxation, education, transportation, except to say, “I support a raise in taxes for Virginia,” and generally saying that Virginia should become like Maryland (which it may well become). Several observations can be made: (1) notwithstanding the abject failures of Democratic Administration’s in numberous states, they win elections (or, at least, control the increasingly corrupt voting process); (2) meaning that the electorate has become coarse, and semi-literate to the point of wanting only to return to their IPads and computers, taking time to read only the headlines; (3) the majority of voting women have entirely lost their moral scruples, seeing their right to unfettered sex, and its potential aftereffect; as the only important issue….
There is only ONE promise that Obama has ever made to the American people that I have ever believed which is the following: “If you elect me president, I will FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA”. I believed him whole heartily when he said that and I still do!
More proof that the Obama Administration is a Left Wing Hate Group populated with anti-Catholic bigots!
Any Catholic who voted for OBAMA for his second term already knew his agenda regarding ABORTION and SODOMY marriage, and trying to force his immoral perspective on all the American people.
These voters committed a mortal sin – in their support of his agenda.
David, you are 100% correct! In addition, ignorance is not an excuse. If people did not know, they should have. One should not vote without knowing what he is voting for. Not being aware of the issues is also a sin.
Unfortunately very few church “leaders” have the moral compass or the convictions to preach that voting for such cretins is in fact a mortal sin!
Most won’t even enforce the Church’s Canon 915!
May God have mercy on an amoral Amerika!

Where oh where are the bishops? Deep into immigration politics, as if that is a Catholic moral imperative. So disgusting, isn’t it?
A woman who deliberately destroys a fetus is answerable for murder. And any fine distinction between its being completely formed or unformed is not admissible among us.

We now have a majority of people on our nation who are more than willing to cast their votes solely based on how it makes them FEEL. These are also the same ones who will proudly tell you that talking about politics makes them feel UNCOMFORTABLE!
Yes, Tracy, because it pricks their conscience. Deep inside most know they are killing a child and that sooner or later their vote will come back “to bite them”, and “bite” them it will. May the Good Lord keep my hands clean and my heart pure because without him I would be and do the same.
