Lies, Damn Lies and Obama's Word Games (video)

Democratic Representative Bart Stupak (D.-Mich.) told CNSNews that he asked President Obama about his claim abortion would not be covered under the health care reform bill. Obama told Rep. Stupak, "What it says is Under my Plan." Of course, President Obama doesn't actually have a plan. At the time he made the speech claiming abortion wasn't covered, the only plan was H.R. 3200. President Obama was playing word games or as Joe Wilson put it when Obama said illegals would not be covered, "You Lie!"

From CNS News:
Rep. Bart Stupak (D.-Mich.) told CNSNews.com that President Barack Obama told him in a telephone conversation that when he said in his Sept. 9 speech to a joint session of Congress that “under our plan no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions” he was not talking about the actual bill drafted in the House but about the president’s own health care plan—which has never been written.
