  • House Democrat: Pelosi Plan Raises Taxes And Funds Abortion

    Rep. Dan Boren (D-OK) tells the New York Times:

    The worst thing we could do in a recession is raise taxes, and this bill does just that. … Finally, I do not believe that the possibility for taxpayer-funded abortion has been clearly and emphatically removed from this legislation.

    Boren is dead on. The House bill raises taxes by $700 billion at a time when our unemployment rate is already 10.2%.

    And contrary to the President’s promise, the current House bill also enables taxpayer funding for elective abortions.

    No wonder Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refuses to let House Democrats go home and listen to their constituents before voting on her health bill.

    One Response to House Democrat: Pelosi Plan Raises Taxes And Funds Abortion

    1. Bobbie Jay says:

      Inappropriate, PERIOD! Obama once explained this would aid women who have complicated pregnancies and to save the woman's life? How many women do any of us know, that would give up their own life for the life of the child? I don't know any that wouldn't. This is a disgusting excuse. Especially when death for the mother giving birth is rare. We're not living in the 1800s! His conniving ways.

      Pregnancies are a result of a personal act of choice. expense that choice to the persons involved. As is appropriate! I had two complicated pregnancies we paid for with our own money! AND NOBODY DIED! Another personal responsibility put on the public! Sorry mr. obama, we're not republican or rich. We are free and living independent (without your intrusion) and want NO CHANGE in that!

      Now go voice to the public the opposite…
