After watching Obama use double-talk, time and time again, it should not shock to anyone that he was just caught doing it during a Jake Tapper interview. This president stood in front of America and lied. During his health care speech, Obama looked into the camera and lied when he said no federal dollars would be used to fund abortions in his health care bill. As Joe Wilson (R-SC) pointed out, Obama is a liar.
See if you can spot the Obama double-talk in this Jake Tapper interview.
JAKE TAPPER, HOST: So, thanks so much for doing this.
BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Thank you.
TAPPER: Here’s a question a lot of Senate Democrats want to know. You said, when you gave your joint address to Congress, that under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions. This amendment passed Saturday night which not only prohibits abortion coverage in the public option, but also prohibits women who receive subsidies from taking out plans that — that provide abortion coverage. Does that meet the promise that you set out or does it over reach, does it go too far?
OBAMA: You know, I laid out a very simple principle, which is this is a health care bill, not an abortion bill. And we’re not looking to change what is the principle that has been in place for a very long time, which is federal dollars are not used to subsidize abortions.
And I want to make sure that the provision that emerges meets that test — that we are not in some way sneaking in funding for abortions, but, on the other hand, that we’re not restricting women’s insurance choices, because one of the pledges I made in that same speech was to say that if you’re happy and satisfied with the insurance that you have, that it’s not going to change.
[BUT???] This liar stood there, lecturing us about calling out people who spread misinformation about “his” health care plan, and stated abortions would not be covered. Now Obama is using the gift of double-talk to lie to our faces again. Abortion will be covered and Obama knows that has been his plan the entire time. That’s our liar-in-chief!
So, you know, this is going to be a complex set of negotiations. I’m confident that we can actually arrive at this place where neither side feels that it’s being betrayed. But it’s going to take some time.
TAPPER: Do you think that amendment is status quo or does it lean a little bit in one direction or the other?
OBAMA: I think that there are strong feelings on both sides. And what that tells me is that there needs to be some more work before we get to the point where we’re not changing the status quo. And that’s the goal. The goal here is to make sure that people who have health insurance have greater stability and security, people who don’t have health insurance get the ability to buy it affordably and that we’re driving down costs.
And, you know, I think everybody understands that there’s going to be work to be done on the Senate side. It’s not going to match up perfectly with the House side. But obviously, it was a historic night for the House. We’ve never been this far. And I’m very confident that my colleagues in the Senate are going to say to themselves that we’ve got to get this done.
That’s Obama. Says one thing to make himself look like a centrist, then turns around and shows his radical far-left ideologies. Again, more proof that you cannot believe a single statement this liar makes. These words came out of Obama’s mouth and his followers cannot claim they didn’t.
Has anyone notice that Obama never gives a straight answer on anything? Usually, Obama resorts back to the familiar “we inherited a mess” and it was “Bush’s fault” for x, y and z. Anyone want to make a wager that the abortion debate will be one of the reasons Obama’s health care bill will not pass the Senate?
We already know this bill will not be deficit neutral. We already know Obama wants to cover abortions and health care for illegals [think "immigration reform"]. We also know that Obama and the Donkeys will attempt to rush this vote before Christmas break. If they let this bill sit out for extended periods of time, people will have time to read it and that is a no-no for these jackasses.
