Obamacare: $1 monthly ‘abortion surcharge’ to be included in healthcare exchange plans

March 13, 2012

  The biggest issue that many people had in the debate leading up to the passage of the Obamacare legislation was the fact that most Representatives and Senators who would be voting on the bill didn’t bother to read the legislation they would be voting on. Congressman John Conyer actually asked what good it would do to read the bill because the Congress still wouldn’t know what was in it unless they each hired two lawyers, and Nancy Pelosi famously quipped “we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.”

  But what went underreported in my opinion was the fact that even if all the Congressmen had read the bill, and had enough lawyers to explain to them what was in the bill, they still wouldn’t know what was going to be in the final bill because the legislation tasked Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius with creating certain Obamacare guidelines AFTER the legislation was signed into law.

    This unelected official was given an extraordinary amount of power and it seems as if there is little we can do about it now. We saw the first results of this little known provision a couple of weeks ago with the contraception mandate, and today we are learning about another new guideline which Kathleen Sebelius is preparing to hand down; people who enroll in a healthcare exchange plan will be required to pay a $1 ‘abortion surcharge’ every month on their plans. Talk of a similar surcharge for sexually transmitted disease testing is around the corner too.

  We were promised by Barack Obama that no federal money would be used to fund abortions in the Obamacare legislation–he even went so far as to sign and Executive Order banning the federal funding of abortion–and while $1 a month may not be allot of money it is still a broken promise and a betrayal of all those who signed onto the bill after his assurance that no federal money would be used for this purpose.

  We all remember Joe Wilson yelling out “you lie” during Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address when Barack Obama promised not to fund abortion, and we all remember the outrage from the left at Joe Wilson for his breach of protocol and disrespect towards the president, but what we should have been asking is; “is he right, and is Barack Obama lying?” The answer to that question is quite obvious now.

    Too bad they didn’t have the $1.00 abortion when Obama’s mother was pregnant….WM

    Not quite sure what the fuss is about. Most health insurance programs provide coverage for abortions today, and that will not change under Obamacare. The costs of those abortions will be covered by premium dollars, not tax dollars.

    Anyway, it’s a woman’s choice to make, in consultation with her medical professional. In some cases, responsible fathers join in the process. There’s no place in there either for an employer or a politician.

    Take good care and may God bless us all!

      Well, on top of federally funding abortion, which Obama promised wouldn’t happen, we have an unelected official who is charged with creating these regulations and it seems to me as if she has quite a bit pf power. This is just the beginning, there is no telling where this law may take us.

      The difference… about two-thirds of insurance companies cover elective abortion to some degree, with most offering providers the opportunity to opt-out. We have the option to choose which plans we provide for employees and are not forced to provide coverage for contraception and abortion. Obama-care forces the payment, and then attempts to hide what the charge is for. Look it up.

      @The Georgia Yankee – are you serious? You aren’t sure what all the fuss is about? It’s about the killing of innocent children by the millions which is no different than Hitler killing Jews. Take a few minutes and watch this short clip. Maybe you will understand if you do.

      No one wants me making decision about what goes on in the bedrooms and neither do I want to know, but they all want my tax dollars to pay for it

        Rick, you are so right. Obama care remember, will be government sanctioned insurance. We wont have any rights to opt-out because we are just common people and not the exempt from Obama Care such as the president, house and senate.are. If we do not want to use his insurance, we will have to pay a fine. What kind of help the people is that? This was to not be an added tax Obama said. Once again another lie right from the mouth of our illegitimate president

    I am praying that SCOTUS rules Obamacare unconstitutional this summer. the country is already broke and can not afford the cost of this program. There will be more and more surprises coming from Sebelius.


    • March 14, 2012 6:49 am

      So am I Jim, this law will never be repealed so out only hope is that it is struck down by SCOTUS.

    The difference is that this is basically state approved genocide. The fuss is about no accountability and the ignorance of people who would vote for people that believe the American public is too stupid to make decisions for them selves.

    As for premium dollars, not tax dollars being used and given the socialists policy of giving away things for free how long will it take them to decided that $1.00 is not fair?

    The entire so called “healthcare” bill was railroaded through with none of, “all the usual suspects,” including the elitist harridan Nancy Pelosi, even aware of what was in the bill itself.

    Insurance companies who offer legally endorosed genocide have the right as independent contractors and people have the choice whether or not to participate in that genocide.

    However, on second thought state sponsored genocide might well fit into the administrations program to assassinate American citizens without due process…..WM

      Good point WIlliam, we all know that once a ‘surcharge’ is in place that it will only increase as the years move on. This bill still won’t be fully implemented until after the election; we are just now seeing the beginning of the regulations which are to come.

    When does the birth control surcharge get added?

    Waiting for the other shoe to drop? How about a $1.00 tax per gallon of gas for Brazilian Butt Lifts?

    A final thought has occurred to me. The $1.00 “bargain” abortion fits in well with another part of the healthcare travesty – independent review panels which will triage the medical needs of seniors. The end result there of course will cull out all those ‘pesky’ seniors who having lived long enough know corruption when they see it.

    If one were to study Hitler’s T-4 Euthanasia Policy which allowed for euthanasia to be used for those with a determined long term chronic illness then we might be inclined to see a parallel between the radical socialists in the Obama administration and the Nazi’s prescribed policies of eugenics when looking at abortions and predetermined medical triage of seniors.

    To those who might think this a stretch – wake up. We have seen policies implemented under this administration that many of us would never have imagined a few generations ago.

    And to think we wasted all those years worrying about the Russians when we have an American born fifth column doing all the dirty works we once feared of happening from others….WM

      They have to cut cost somewhere and if there are less people there is less expense. All part of the plan, I would say.

    No excuse to not know the facts, read the (any) bill or contact your legislators to verify question/concerns:

    Pelosi said but we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy….apparently there’s still lots of fog…hope this helps you make up your opinions/concerns/questions based on facts…that’s the input our government needs to be for & by “We the People” not the corporatocracy:)

      This healthcare bill is over 1000 pages. Not one person who voted it in to law I guarantee has read the entire bill. They might see the little good it does have in it and not see the whole picture, which is severely damaging to the USA. Even other countries who have similar healthcare set up in their counties have told us not to do this and how damaging it will be.

    Believe it or not Hitler and Obama are connected though diametrically opposed. Hitler destroyed Germany with his sadistic misguided plan to make it the strongest, most powerful nation on the planet. Obama is weakening and destroying The United States of America with his well laid plans to weaken and destroy the United States of America.

    Who in the world voted for Obama? He is worthless and in the old days we called socialists communists! Please send him back to Chicago before he ruins our country. I do not want to pay for abortions or any ones birth control. How about gas prices,food, clothes and the list goes on. He trying to distract us from his failed policies.

    Anonymous – Bravo. Obama is a communist. His agenda is leading up to a government of the “proletariat,” as envisioned by Karl Marx and his bastard son Saul Alinsky which is intended to lead the country into the eventual horror of a totalitarian communist government where the proletariat becomes the enslaved. Time to call him what he is and stop beating around the bush, (no pun intended.)….WM

    I say a $1.00 surcharge for the hospital ER’s to cover the cost of visits by members of the gay community when they find it necessary to have a dead gerbil or a mayonnaise jar removed from one’s anal cavity. After all why should one hesitate in the persuit of sexual gratification in one’s orifice of choice due to a lack of cash or insurance? Where is it written in the new constitution that only women may choose to kill
    things and have the taxpayer foot the bill? Where is the love, where is the compassion, are dollar bills meant only for titty bars?
