From a CNN story today - apparently 40 - 55 representatives will vote AGAINST the Obama health care bill if federal funding for abortion is removed from the bill. In other words, this entire overhaul of our healthcare system is meaningless to these Democrats. It's all a front just to get taxpayer funded infanticide.
Once again, liberal hypocrisy on stage for the world to see. For a liberal Democrat, socializing medicine is a life long dream.....as long as women can have the government pay to dismember their unborn babies. If that's not part of the deal, well, let's just forget that part about insuring 30,000,000 uninsured.
Washington (CNN) -- The divisive issue of abortion is once again causing problems for House Democrats as they plan to move forward with the health care bill.
Anti-abortion Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Michigan, is asking for a vote on his language restricting taxpayer funding for abortion, and a group of female abortion-rights Democrats came out of an emergency meeting in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office Friday evening visibly angry about the request.
Rep. Diana Degette, D-Colorado, told reporters a vote on Stupak's measure was a "nonstarter," saying, "somewhere between 40 and 55" abortion-rights Democrats would bolt from the bill.
