Democrat Busted by Fact-Checkers

Democrat Busted by Fact-Checkers

(UnitedVoice.com) – On Wednesday, May 12, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra spoke during a House Energy and Commerce Committee Health subcommittee hearing. Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) took the opportunity to ask the secretary if he’s going to “follow the law” while he’s in office and whether that will include enforcing the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban. Becerra responded to him by claiming there’s “no law that deals specifically with the term ‘partial-birth abortion.’”

The problem with his claim is that it’s 100% false. Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion organization, called the HHS secretary out for the falsehood, saying, “Stop lying. The law passed & Supreme Court upheld it.”

The organization went on to post the law on Twitter.

It’s Becerra’s job to uphold the laws that pertain to his agency. How’s he going to do that when he doesn’t even know the laws? It seems that he’s either lying or grossly incompetent, and neither is good for the American people.
