Barack Obama refused to pay the health care bill for his poverty stricken brother, so conservative author Dinesh D’Souza paid it

Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza writes:

George has a real life brother who just happens to be the president of the United States.  (George Obama is the youngest of eight children sired by Barack Obama Sr.)  George’s brother is a multimillionaire and the most powerful man in the world.  Moreover, George’s brother has framed his re-election campaign around the “fair share” theme that we owe obligations to those who are less fortunate.  

One of Obama’s favorite phrases comes right out of the Bible: “We are our brother’s keeper.”  Yet he has not contributed a penny to help his own brother.

So much for spreading the wealth around.

Obama’s refusal to help George is especially surprising because George doesn’t just live in American-style poverty but rather in Third World poverty.  He lives in a shanty in the Huruma slum in Nairobi.  He gets by on a few dollars a month.  Obama also has an aunt named Hawa Auma, his father’s sister, who ekes out a living selling coal on the streets of a small village in Kenya.  She says she would like to have her teeth fixed, but she cannot afford it.  Obama hasn’t offered to help her either.

What’s going on here?  Why is President Obama so hesitant to help family members in need?

George’s tragic situation exposes President Obama as a hypocrite.  Here is a man who demands that others pay higher taxes to help the poor—even poor people who are not related to them—while Obama himself refuses to help a close relative like George.

    where are the facts? This is one woman’s book and there are not links to sit said information.

    You’re telling me that if you spent your whole life not knowing you had a 1/2 brother up until now, and then found out you did, and then what you’re going to fly around the world and pay for him? They never knew each other. Ridiculous.

    AND his brother didn’t ask for help, nor was sore in anyway about it as they have no real relationship until now. It’s in the book, it’s in the interview, it’s online.
