Obamacare – Inaccurate Claims of 2010
Have you heard it reiterated that Obamacare does not fund abortions and that it does not ration health care for senior citizens? Have you wondered if it’s true? After all, the bill was massive enough that Nancy Pelosi was urging lawmakers to hurry up and pass the bill so they could find out what was in it.
National Right to Life has several pieces you might want to read for clarification on both of these issues.
“The new healthcare system does not subsidize abortion.” FALSE.
Douglas Johnson, a legislative expert, has made a sworn affidavit on the multiple abortion subsidies in the Obama Health Care Law, available as a pdf.
“There is no rationing of health care in the new system.” FALSE.
There are multiple ways in which Medicare patients will be likely to receive less care. There are many article on the National Right to Life website, organized here. http://www.nrlc.org/HealthCareRationing/Index.html
Pay special attention to “The 4 Routes to Rationing” in the box on the lower right.
When faced with public officials who deny until further denial is impossible, it is well to be armed with some telling details.
