Obama Spokesman: He Prefers Senate Health Care Bill With Abortion Funding

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- President Barack Obama promised Americans in a speech to Congress that his version of a government-run health care bill would not contain abortion funding. Now his top spokesman confirms that Obama favors the Senate bill that funds abortions over the House bill that bans abortion funding.

In a September nationally-televised speech to Congress, Obama sought to clear up projections from pro-life advocates that his health care plan would fund abortions.

"One more misunderstanding I want to clear up -- under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions," Obama claimed.

Since his speech, the House has approved a health care bill that contains the Stupak amendment making it so taxpayer funding of abortions is prohibited in virtually all cases. On the other hand, the Senate bill contains the Reid-Nelson language that opens the door to forcing taxpayers to fund abortions and allowing the Obama administration to force insurance companies to cover them with taxpayers' premiums.

Members of the House and Senate will have to work out final language and battle each other over whether the conference committee bill will fund abortions or not.

Following up on the impending battle, ABC News correspondent Jake Tapper spoke with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs after their interview on "This Week" about health care.

"So, does the Senate language come closer to what the president wants than the House language?" he said he asked Gibbs. "Gibbs told me this morning: 'Yes.'" Ref. Source 1

Lets see only 1 in three people actually want this bill to become law. Why are they so insistent on forcing this down our collective throats.

Healthcare and Massachusetts election

The battle to fill Ted Kennedy's Senate seat is in the final stages as the election is tomorrow. Many experts believe the fate of Obamacare also lies with this election as well, meaning all eyes across the country are focused in the Northeast. President Obama is once again in a difficult position. He promised to politically defend anyone who supported Obamacare, putting him in the tough spot of going out and campaigning when he knows the candidate will lose.

No Jamming

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Obama is telling Democrats not to "jam" a health care overhaul bill through Congress, instead urging them to coalesce around popular parts of the bill. In an interview with ABC News, Obama said Wednesday that Congress must wait for newly elected Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown to be sworn into office before lawmakers move forward. Brown campaigned against the proposed health care overhaul. Ref. USAToday

Obama & Healthcare

Canada is always presented as a model of socialized medicine. Of course there are stories of long waits for MRI's and procedures, but it is often hailed by those that like socialized medicine as a success. You would think that those politicians that made it happen there would be proud of their accomplishment and maybe even stand by it...

N.L. Premier Williams set to have heart surgery in you.S.

"I can confirm that Premier Williams did leave the province this morning and will be undergoing heart surgery later this week," said Mr. Williams' spokeswoman, Elizabeth Matthews.

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. -- Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams will undergo heart surgery later this week in the United States.

Deputy premier Kathy Dunderdale confirmed the treatment at a news conference Tuesday, but would not reveal the location of the operation or how it would be paid for.

"He has gone to a renowned expert in the procedure that he needs to have done," said Ms. Dunderdale, who will become acting premier while Mr. Williams is away for three to 12 weeks.

"In consultation with his own doctors, he's decided to go that route."

Mr. Williams' decision to leave Canada for the surgery has raised eyebrows over his apparent shunning of Canada's health-care system.

"It was never an option offered to him to have this procedure done in this province," said Ms. Dunderdale, refusing to answer whether the procedure could be done elsewhere in Canada.

Mr. Williams, 59, has said nothing of his health in the media.

"The premier has made a commitment that once he's through this procedure and he's well enough, he's going to talk about the whole process and share as much detail with you as he's comfortable to do at that time," she said.

Ms. Dunderdale wouldn't say where in the you.S. Mr. Williams is seeking treatment.

A popular Progressive Conservative premier, Mr. Williams has also seen his share of controversy. During the 2008 federal election, Mr. Williams vehemently opposed the Conservative government, launching his "Anything But Conservative" -- which has been credited with keeping the Tories from winning any seats in the province.

He's also drawn criticism for his support of the seal hunt.

The US is Canada's fallback position for all that slips through the cracks or for those who want better care...just ask Mr. Williams.

Obama Plans Televised Health Care Summit to Persuade Republicans to Back Bill

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- President Barack Obama is planning a televised health care summit later this month in an effort to salvage the pro-abortion government-run health care bill. The plan is an effort to revive his sagging polling numbers and that of the legislation that has seen just one Republican support it in Congress.

White House officials say the February 25 meeting is not an attempt to start over on the health care bill but is ostensibly a lobbying and public relations effort.

"I want to come back [after the Presidents Day congressional recess] and have a large meeting - Republicans and Democrats - to go through, systematically, all the best ideas that are out there and move it forward," Obama told CBS anchor Katie Couric in a Sunday interview.

Obama claimed he wants to "look at the Republican ideas that are out there." "If we can go, step by step, through a series of these issues and arrive at some agreements, then, procedurally, there's no reason why we can't do it a lot faster the process took last year," he said.

Politico reported on a White House follow-up statement saying, "What the president will not do is let this moment slip away. He hopes to have Republican support in doing so - but he is going to move forward on health reform."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid hailed the idea but House Republican Leader John Boehner scoffed. Ref. Source 1
