QueenNancy Lies--Again

QueenNancy, perhaps oxygen-deprived from flying on the taxpayers' G-5s, lied again about abortion coverage in ObamaCare V3.0.

Here's the technical breakout.

"Buried deep in the Manager’s Amendment was new language making a direct appropriation of funds for Community Health Centers (CHCs) (which are also called Federally Qualified Health Centers, or FQHCs), totaling $7 billion ($7,000,000,000) over five years," wrote the NRLC, referencing Sec. 10503 on page 2355 of H.R. 3590.

"Because this is a direct appropriation in the health care bill itself, these funds will not flow through the annual appropriations bill for the Department of Health and Human Services. Therefore, these funds would not be covered by the Hyde Amendment," said the group.

The Senate bill forms the basis for the proposals presented by President Obama last month, proposals that NRLC said only make matters worse. "None of President Obama's proposed changes diminish any of the sweeping pro-abortion problems in the Senate bill, and he actually proposes to increase the funds that would be available to directly subsidize abortion procedures (through Community Health Centers) and to subsidize private health insurance that covers abortion (through the premium-subsidy tax credits program)," said NRLC.

It's also possible that QueenNancy never read the bill, I suppose.

And another howler from QueenNancy:

“It took courage to pass Social Security."

No it didn't. SS was passed when life-expectancy was ~63 years. Offering payouts for people aged >65 (when most were already dead) was not "courageous." It was typical (D) Congress-ese.
