Then there are "slips", like Charles Rangel noting that the current plan is just an incremental step on the way to universal public health care.
The latest indication though, is a comment made by one of the Democrat's closest allies, Planned Parenthood. The Political reports that, speaking about how important it was for the public health care option to cover abortions, Laurie Rubiner, vice president for public policy and advocacy at Planned Parenthood, lets the cat out of the bag once again:
On “Fox News Sunday” this past weekend, budget director Peter Orszag said he is “not prepared to rule ... out” taxpayer financing for abortions.
Planned Parenthood’s Rubiner said the alternative would be slashing benefits for millions of women who currently have coverage for abortions and cited polling suggesting such services have popular support.
The anti-abortion activists’ demand “violates the first principle of health care reform, which is: Don’t make people worse off under health care reform than they are today,” she said.
Why would limiting abortion in the public option "slash benefits" for anybody who have coverage now under private plans?
Only if those private plans are going away.
Which is obviously what the liberal expect. It's the only way that Rubiner's statement makes any sense.
The Obama administration, with Pelosi, Reid, and the Democratic majority, plan on replacing people's private coverage with the public option. So if the public option doesn't cover abortions, millions of women WILL lose abortion coverage, when the Democrats wipe out their private health insurance benefits.
Thank you, Planned Parenthood, for providing more evidence for the real plans of this administration. When Obama promises you can keep your insurance, just remember: Your insurance company is evil, Obama will tax your plan, your company will want to push you into the public option, and Planned Parenthood expects millions of women to lose their private coverage.
And note: not one major news organization has asked WHY Planned Parenthood thinks women will lose their private insurance -- because they all know that is the plan under Obama.
