And honestly, when politicians talk, you can count on them not telling the whole truth.
It is a shame that we've come to this in our country. The very idea that somehow any politician can get away with anything previously said because "that's what politicians do, they lie" is absurd. There is no accountability in this country anymore. With something as contraversial as abortion, the president should have his feet held to the fire on this one. How can you look at the American people and lie to their face, buy votes with that same lie, and then use our money to pay for an abortion (whether medically necessary, legal, or not) is an outrage.
