Considering he’s funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, I’m sure they will be more than willing to help implement his disastrous health care law.
President Obama asked Planned Parenthood and its supporters to play a key role in informing Americans of the details of the Affordable Care Act as he addressed the group Friday.
“I’m here to … ask for your help, because we need to get the word out,” he said in Washington during a speech rescheduled from Thursday night, when he chose to spend extra time with victims of the West, Texas, explosion. “We need you to tell your patients, your friends, your neighbors, your family members what the health care law means for them.”
It was about as controversial as Obama got in the speech — the first to the group by a sitting U.S. president — as he avoided talking about the Kermit Gosnell trial or a recent ruling on the morning-after pill that Planned Parenthood opposes.
“Make sure they know that if they don’t have health insurance, they’ll be able to sign up for quality, affordable health insurance, starting this fall in an online market place where private insurers will compete for their business,” Obama said, continuing his appeal for Obamacare. “Make sure that they know that there are plans out there right now that cover the cost of contraception and preventative care free of charge. We’ve got to spread the word, particularly among women, particularly among young women, who are the ones who are most likely to benefit from these laws.”
