Obama won’t let massive felonies stand in the way of expanding Obamacare

Undeterred by undercover videos showing senior officials apparently engaged in illegal partial birth abortions and the illegal trafficking of dead baby body parts, Barack Obama is cutting Planned Parenthood a $1 million check to sign up people for Obamacare.

“The Obama administration on Wednesday awarded more than $1 million in grants to Planned Parenthood to help promote ObamaCare, a move that is drawing GOP criticism at a time when the healthcare provider is under congressional investigation,” The Hill reports.

“Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) blasted the White House’s decision as ‘unconscionable’ in light of allegations of illegal activity in the health provider’s fetal tissue program, which has prompted key Republicans to call for a total defunding of the organization,” The Hill notes.

“A growing body of evidence suggests that Planned Parenthood broke federal law and now the Obama administration is thumbing its nose at Congress and taxpayers by using this backdoor maneuver to boost funding for the scandal-ridden abortion giant,” says Black.

Black is the author of H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015.

“Planned Parenthood has blood on its hands. Over the last week, we’ve seen multiple videos showing its employees brazenly discussing the harvesting of aborted babies’ tissue and organs. But the truth is, Planned Parenthood’s culture of depravity runs much deeper than a couple of videos,” she said at the time.

The taxpayer-funded checks are part of a new Obama offensive to expand his failing Obamacare program.

“The Obama administration on Wednesday announced nearly $70 million in federal grants to groups promoting the healthcare law. The grants will go to 100 groups in 34 states, including three Planned Parenthood affiliates,” The Hill reports.

Planned Parenthood affiliates in Iowa, Missouri and Montana will pocket about $1 million in taxpayer cash to promote Obamacare.

Black also authored legislation to defund the Obamacare navigator program in its entirety.

“The access these ‘Navigators’ will be given to private Americans’ records present staggering opportunities for fraud and abuse. According to the information HHS has provided, all that these ‘Navigators” have to do to get access to sensitive taxpayer information is complete a one page application and as little as 20 hours of training – no background check is required. What makes this announcement even worse is that, in addition to the already announced grant to Planned Parenthood in D.C, three state-based Planned Parenthood affiliates will receive a total of about $655,000 from the federal government, despite assurances from the President when the law was passed that Obamacare would not give federal funding to abortion providers,” said Black at the time.

“Protecting taxpayers from the potential for abuse under this program is critical, and is why I have introduced H.R.2087, the Protecting Taxpayer Dollars and Identity under Obamacare Act, which would prohibit federal funding of the Obamacare ‘Navigator’ program. Until this disastrous law can successfully be repealed, we must do what we can to protect the American public,” said Black.
