It gets worse

Of the many, many problems in the new "health care" bill (which you can read about here - provided by the Heritage foundation) I came across this:

In 2011, Medicaid allocated by states will be allowed to increase to 133% of the Federal Poverty Line (FPL) for childless adults only.

I'm not sure why the federal government restricts this service to childless adults only. I suspect, though that because B.O is the most pro-abortion politician in the history of the US, many facets of this bill either directly (through tax funded abortion) or indirectly support the killing of the unborn. It's terrifying how much easier getting an abortion just became. The federal government now funds abortions, puts new 'restrictions' on non-profit hospitals (Catholic hospitals) and gives out various lollipops to those who have no children. As the bill unravels, it will get messier. As it gets messier, it becomes more and more absurd for individuals to continue thinking the bill is really about 'health care' when it is in fact about government influence, the abdication of liberty, and the federally funded killing of the unborn.

Here is another great article worth reading.

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical. -- Thomas Jefferson

Back before all of this mess started, a Christian, pro-life, grassroots organization sent out an email stating that Planned Parenthood was wanting a bailout just like the banks and auto industry. Lo and behold within a short time out comes skippy the president with his miraculous "healthcare" bill. Coincidence? Think about it. That is the one thing that has stayed in. The only thing restricting it now is an executive order that can be rescinded.
