ObamaCare Abortion Lies: Taxpayer Study Findings

In a report just released, the nonpartisan congressional watchdog Government Accountability Office has confirmed the all-too-familiar story:  ObamaCare is forcing every American to pay for someone's abortion through government-mandated health insurance subsidies, all in direct conflict with President Obama's personal guarantee at the signing of his Affordable Car Act in 2010 when he said that no federal tax dollars would fund abortion.
In response to the government report, the Obama Administration said it "acknowledges that additional clarification may be needed."

-- From "Concerns Raised Over 'Obamacare' Abortion Coverage" by Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, Associated Press 9/16/14

The Government Accountability Office said in a report released late Monday that only 1 of 18 insurers it reviewed was separately itemizing a charge for coverage of elective abortions on enrollees' bills.

That detail is important because the original compromise that President Barack Obama sealed with anti-abortion Democrats stipulated that no federal funds would be used to pay for elective abortions. Instead, private health plans covering the procedure would collect a separate premium, which would be segregated from federal subsidies for other medical services.

Although abortion is a legal medical procedure, longstanding federal laws prohibit taxpayer funds from being used to pay for it, except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.

From "Government Watchdog Finds ObamaCare Massively Funds Abortion-on-Demand" by Targeted News Service posted at InsuranceNewsNet.com

GAO has found that in 2014, taxpayers are funding over a thousand Obamacare health plans that subsidize abortion on demand--even late-term abortion--in defiance of the Hyde Amendment the President publicly said he would honor.

According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) April 2014 estimate, between 2014 and 2024, taxpayer subsidies to buy ObamaCare health plans will total $855 billion, making taxpayers unwittingly complicit in abortion.

GAO found that even an accounting trick embedded in ObamaCare requiring premium payers to be accessed a separate monthly abortion surcharge is being completely ignored. The surcharge would have added some modicum of transparency so individuals would know whether they are purchasing a pro-life or pro-abortion health insurance plan if faithfully implemented. Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska summed up the plain meaning of the law: "you have to write two checks." According to GAO, none of the 18 insurance companies they interviewed are collecting the abortion surcharge separately.

From "ObamaCare subsidies paying for abortions, GAO investigation finds" by Sarah Ferris, The Hill 9/16/14

“Today’s GAO report confirms that under the president’s health care law, abortions are being paid for with taxpayer funds by more than 1,000 exchange plans across the country,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said in a statement. “This information has been hidden from the American public for years by the Obama Administration, which repeatedly denied congressional requests for its public release."

Diane Black (R-Tenn.) called the report “disturbing” and said she has been repeatedly ignored by the administration when asking about the issue of abortion subsidies.

“Now the GAO has proven that the government has failed to ensure that the insurance issuers are not billing the abortion surcharge separately as required by the law. So the question remains, what will the Administration now do to ensure compliance? This must be fixed,” Black said.
