“This executive order is just a piece of paper”

Key Quotes

•If the bill is signed into law, these statutory requirements and defects are not subject to correction or nullification by the chief executive or his appointees, whether by Executive Order, regulation, or otherwise. (National Right to Life Committee statement)

•An Executive Order cannot prevent insurance companies that pay for abortions from participating in the exchanges. Further, Executive Orders can be undone or modified as quickly as they are created. This is a blatant attempt to subvert democracy and should be quickly quashed. (Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President & CEO of Americans United for Life Action)

•If the Obama Administration continued to falsely believe the Senate bill had no problem on the issue of funding abortion and funding health plans that include abortion, he certainly would not put forth the idea of an EO. Because of an EO would give no protections to the unborn when it comes to funding for abortion in the Senate and Reconciliation bills, FRCAction will still score votes on both in our scorecard for the Second Session of the 111th Congress. (FRC letter to members of Congress)

Better Solutions:

•The Republican plan, available at HealthCare.GOP.gov, would codify the Hyde Amendment and prohibit all authorized and appropriated federal funds from being used to pay for abortion. And under the Republican plan, any health plan that includes abortion coverage may not receive federal funds.

    A piece of paper? …
    A piece of paper? Like a piece of paper that authorizes torture and the suspension of habeas corpus on foreign nationals and Americans, on the basis of a political crony’s opinion?
    No, that’s totally different.

    @PeskyPanda And if the U.S. didn’t feed goods and money to Germany throughout the 30’s and 40’s, it wouldn’t have been a problem. Thanks for coming into the war late by the way, our dead grandparents really appreciate it.

    We MUST teach that …
    We MUST teach that the Bill of Rights amended both the Commerce and General Welfare clauses to end ambiguity in those parts of the original Constitution.

    The Bill of Rights exists because our Founders realized that ambiguity requires interpretation which leads to tyranny because power naturally concentrates and corrupts so our natural rights needed protection from unlimited gov’t.

    When politicians and the courts interpret law instead of simply applying law, citizens ALWAYS lose liberty!

    @Dangturtle

    No president is going to get rid of the Patriot Act, it gives the government too much power. No president will give it up because he worries that he may one day need it. This is why people fought so hard against it when it was first being
    passed. You only get one shot with that sort of thing.

    Anyway, I’m interested to know what makes you guys (Not just you, Dangturtle) think that Obama is a dictator, communist, etc. And why you think that this healthcare bill is so awful.

    @Swholli umm, while we did win the war of 1812 I don’t know if I would classify it as a major as kicking, before the battle of Fort McHenry (the battle of the star spangled banner) they did take burn Washington, and the battle of New Orleans did not even occur until two weeks after the war was over. The Spanish American war now there was an as kicking.

    But it was one of very few times a nation lost its capital and one the war and we have done it twice!

    I don’t know where you are from, but if the US didn’t intervene in WWII ALL of Europe would be Germany and everyone would be eating sauerkraut, so a little respect for all the people, not just Americans that died so you could run your mouth like a true cyber thug.
