"But frankly, [Obama] should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people."
- Former Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA), July 2014
CNS News reports on explosive comments made by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) Wednesday at a NOW/NARAL-sponsored “Stand Up for Women’s Health” rally in Washington, DC (via Memeorandum):
(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) said today that the new Republicans elected to the House of Representatives last November came to Congress “to kill women.” She also likened Republican efforts to prohibit federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest or where the life of the mother is endangered to actions taken by Nazis.
“This is probably one of the worst times we’ve seen because the numbers of people elected to Congress. I went through this as co-chair of the arts caucus,” Slaughter said. “In ’94 people were elected simply to come here to kill the National Endowment for the Arts. Now they’re here to kill women.”
Slaughter took aim at H.R. 3, the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” a bill that would make permanent the Hyde Amendment restrictions on federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape or incest or a threat to the life of the mother, and that would also prohibit people from taking tax deductions for payments made for abortions except in those circumstances.
Although the text of the bill makes no reference to people needing a “receipt” to prove their abortion was for one of the excepted categories if they try to deduct the abortion fee they paid from their federal taxes, Slaughter suggested that under the bill, if enacted, people would need receipts for their abortions in such circumstances.
“You are allowed to have an abortion if you have been raped or it’s a matter of incest,” said Slaughter. “However, you have to keep a receipt. Did you know that? It’s sort of like an old German Nazi movie. Show me your papers!”
No doubt that between the death threats targeting Republican politicos that have repeatedly happened in Wisconsin over the controversial union bill and the overheated, hysterical rhetoric coming from staunch pro-aborts in Congress and elsewhere over the Planned Parenthood funding battle, President Obama will take to the podium ASAP to renew his calls for civility, just as soon as the words can be pre-programmed into the teleprompter.
And the national MSM will join shortly thereafter to reverse course on their virtual boycott of reporting on any violent rhetoric and threats that come from left wingers.
Oh, and I’m soon to be in line as the next Princess of Wales. The whole Wills/Kate thing is a diversionary tactic. Wills and I are quite close …
