Democrats Block ID Requirement for Obamacare UPDATE: Also Reject Anti-Abortion Provision. What? Obama lied???

September 30, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Once again we see that everything that Obama said was a lie. 

They make sure that there is no ID requirement so that we can make sure you are not an illegal alien when Obama says it will not cover them.

Then they will not allow anything into the bill to prevent federal funding of abortions when Obama says it will not cover them.

Dem block a 72 hour public viewing of the bill and a cost assessment before the vote when Obama said all bills would have that.

Tort reform, rationing, tax increases, deficit neutral… 

Keep this in mind when Obama says you can keep your existing coverage or it will not destroy private health care.

Obama knows full well what people want from health care reform and knows what they want to hear.  He tells them what he knows they want to hear, but works hard to do the opposite and keep everyone from finding out until its too late.

Democrats on Senate Finance unanimously blocked an amendment to the Baucus bill which would require applicants for the healthcare exchanges or healthcare subsidies show a photo ID before receiving benefits.

The President and Democrats have claimed that illegal immigrants will not be eligible for Obamacare, but every time Republicans have sought to introduce language which would actually require applicants to prove their identity and lawful status the Democrats have voted it down.

Without that requirement, the bill "remains dearly lacking when it comes to identification," Grassley said. "Frankly, I’m very perplexed as to why anyone would oppose this amendment," he said.

But Democratic Sen. Jeff Bingaman, who represents the border state of New Mexico, said that the type of fraud Grassley said he wants to prevent is highly uncommon. "The way I see the amendment, it’s a solution without a problem," Bingaman said.

"Highly uncommon." How would he know?

UPDATE [DrewM.]: The committee also rejected an amendment sponsored by Orin Hatch that would have prevented money provided via tax credits to be used for plans that included abortion services.

No money for abortion or illegal aliens? How about a bridge in Brooklyn, does Obama have any of those for sale?
