Hypocrisy That Would Make Even Obama Blush

By now, who hasn't seen US Rep. Alan Grayson's (D-FL) reality-twisting rant on the House floor, during which he claims a Republican version of health care would have Americans "die quickly"? When asked to apologize, he apologized instead to the "44,789 Americans [who] die every year because they have no health insurance," adding that this "holocaust" is "more than ten times the number of Americans who've died in the war in Iraq; it's more than ten times the number of Americans who died on 9-11." Later, one of Grayson's aides, replying to an outraged constituent via email, explained that Democrats "feel failure to act is similar to murdering the uninsured."

It should go without saying that efforts to arrive at such a figure are highly subjective, resulting in little more than political fodder, as Grayson demonstrates. But even if true, 44,789 is just 1/30th-- yes, one in thirty-- the number of persons aborted every year in our country.

What's remarkable about all this is that Grayson, as an anti-life lawmaker, is a collaborator in history's greatest genocide. His political party not only defends and promotes the abortion of well over a million healthy Americans every year, it funds hundreds of thousands of these murders with our tax dollars, through such proxies as Planned Parenthood. And they intend to institutionalize this slaughter as "reform" of our health care system.

This brings to mind the above cartoon, published last year to highlight Barack Obama's efforts in Illinois to codify euthanasia, which Compassion & Choices (the euthanasia lobby formerly known as The Hemlock Society) gleefully admits is an integral part of the Democrats' health care proposals. By the way, did you catch Grayson's jab at pro-life advocates at the close of his diatribe? "Let's remember that we should care about people even after they're born." Evidently, to Grayson and like-minded lawmakers, nothing says "care" more than killing, whether in a womb or in a hospice.

Once again, unabashed anti-life Democrats have taken hypocrisy to a whole new level, underscoring the truth of Rep. Joe Wilson's (R-SC) outburst before Obama and Congress: "You lie!"
