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.
