There are new questions that are being raised about president Obama's health care overhaul as we find out that some Planned Parenthood clinics.
Have received some 375000.
Dollars in federal funding.
To help sign up new members.
To the new health care coverage now critics immediately pointed out.
That the president pledged to never spent a single federal dollar on clinics that perform abortions.
And that promise actually was what secured the many critical votes that were needed.
Including Michigan congressman Bart Stupak who at the time came on America live and defended the deal listen.
This executive order that we negotiated with the White House.
Unequivocally says there'll be no abortions at.
-- community health centers and not be paid for and then a number of other protections are put in.
This is a very good executive order -- the president signs it which we expect tomorrow there will have the full force and effect of law.
What is to stop this openly pro choice president from reversing himself on as we've seen him.
Reverse himself on the other deals that were offered to get senators' votes.
-- connection with this with this bill what is to stop him from reversing himself on this executive order now he's got your vote.
Look -- -- sort of -- grass were to be public we will have.
The public sign you know of this -- public still.
I don't end and you're right and I didn't.
There's nothing that would stop this president from a month from now.
And -- from now ten years from now.
Repealing this executive order.
Certainly know Maxwell is a democratic strategist and contributor to.
-- ebony dot com.
Good to have you here Mike Gallagher is a syndicated radio host Fox News contributor you know him while.
Good to see both an -- -- Hillary hello good so -- the critics came out the Republicans are saying wait a minute.
Before you got the vote he said no federal funding to any clinics or health care facilities to provide abortion and then afterwards you even a short that it wouldn't happen.
But it's bigger then the 375.
-- -- 5000 number we raise a 105 groups.
Get a total of 67 million dollars in these navigator -- to sign people up including Planned Parenthood -- I think overreacting.
-- -- tell -- something I mean as I always try to anticipate what what my friends on the left -- possibly say to try to defend this egregious.
-- -- about face from Megan can't pay -- -- -- Megan sat there and said what's gonna prevent President Obama who is a fiercely pro choice guy.
To turn pro abortion president to turn around and change -- -- this is exactly what's happened everybody knows Planned Parenthood.
He's one of the largest pro abortion providers on the planet and now even if it's a done.
Of of of exchange money of our money going to Planned Parenthood he completely broke his promise and once more we're seen.
Called Obama care come apart at this change I mean it's it's almost comical -- -- were it not for the seriousness of talking about the lives of unborn babies.
There is at least transparency that it's happened.
It was early this that is not happening now I'm saying that there is a thing called the Hyde amendment we don't know what that is that doesn't allow the funding that is going to Planned Parenthood to be used for their abortion services -- money going to Planned Parenthood and this particular case.
Is -- to make sure that people are informed about the services that are provided under Obama care like mammograms.
Annual exams birth control things that people -- preventative health care services that when they need one in five women go to Planned Parenthood.
And it's not for abortions that's only 3% of the things that they offer and no federal money goes to that so -- group -- in a modern -- audit the narrative.
Then the audits all -- Obama government does well that's yeah.
Problem exactly a -- and we look to the federal government really do that for all sorts of different things -- -- I don't understand but that's you know part of it is that that there's speculation.
That -- -- it is supposedly using federal money for abortions but nobody's been able to.
Actually sir -- evidence let me ask you this if you're insistent that the money that's going big money taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood and you're so sure that it won't be used for abortions.
Then why doesn't it say you get it.
But you must agree that it doesn't go there is no provision and other than the oversight you mention which the American people we report they can decide if they can rely on the fact that'll be monitored.
Why not put in a specific provision as a president promised to reassure.
Americans that are not in favor of -- -- that -- high.
Amendment is the law.
Right so if they did use the federal money to go to abortions that would they would be breaking the law but that starting on the little.
-- had not using money for a -- my -- money.
To make sure that low income women are able to get preventative health every one in five women use -- you heard that they resilient they have breast cancer.
This admitted they have cervical cancer is an important thing this administration has has this -- for the rule of law we.
Oh it's not let's go back -- -- -- not.
Happens early and I'm not I'm not speculate on -- excuse me I'm going back a week two when President Obama decided to huddle behind closed doors and exempt members of congress and their staffs from the additional costs of obamacare which is a -- that's yeah.
Google isn't quite -- put in the -- had a purpose that it would never leave us but he's hoping he doesn't have.
He does not have regard for the rule now rule of law and I did -- with all due respect you're asking Americans to trust the Obama administration you just admitted -- Americans to trust that you're the process of auditing usually don't like your what do you -- yeah that stage what everybody -- -- navigator money situation to -- people a lot that's exact double and even the idea about business.
Oversight when you're talking 67 million dollars in just the state -- getting -- including -- Mr.
Leno tries to -- -- The the advice that planned parent is going to give to women do you think Planned Parenthood isn't going to advise women that the that abortion is an option on the.
An option a complication only allowed obviously not an option should get tested but it is still -- little don't have to pay for we don't know.
It -- Obama is Hyde amendment hide it -- the Obama just say it I'm keeping it.
Tell you I don't think you -- They don't expect the Obama administration to monitor -- making about the deal we got to leave it there for today but I think we should come back and see how this actually plays out -- -- even if the lights stay on and the staff stays on.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Like a great discussion -- sometimes Greg.
