Kuhner Lies About Affordable Care Act

Kuhner Lies About Affordable Care Act October 8, 2013

Jeffrey Kuhner, a columnist for the Moonie Times, is a professional liar. That’s his job, to say anything at all, no matter how untrue, as long as it supports Moon’s (and his own) right wing ideology. And that often means stirring up the anti-choice crowd with lies like this:

Mr. Obama publicly vowed that Obamacare would not allocate taxpayer dollars to fund abortions. In fact, he convinced pro-life Democrats, such as then-Rep. Bart Stupak of Michigan, to support the 2009 health care overhaul on this very promise. Mr. Stupak prevailed on the president to sign an executive order stipulating there would be no taxpayer-funded abortions under Obamacare. As with much else about the law, Mr. Obama lied. He deliberately deceived the American people.

Recently, the Office of Personnel Management released an Obamacare guide, stating that members of Congress and their staff are allowed to now receive U.S. taxpayer funds to get an abortion. Think about this: Christians will be compelled to violate their conscience rights, paying for a practice they find not only morally abominable but goes against their fundamental religious beliefs. This is an assault upon their faith, individual liberties and religious freedom.

He does not quote that OPM document, nor does he link to it. He can’t do so because if people actually read it, they would know he was lying. The document — which you can view here — very explicitly says the exact opposite of what he claims it says:

No Federal funds, including administrative funds, will be used to cover abortions or administer plans that cover abortions.

Kuhner is lying. As usual.

Devout Christians are obligated to oppose Obamacare — including those who champion social justice and universal health care.

You know what else I think devout Christians should oppose? Working for a cult leader who claimed that Jesus failed to redeem mankind and that he is the true messiah. But that doesn’t seem to bother Kuhner in the slightest.
