Bart Stupak’s (D-Mich) claim that he and like-minded, pro-life Democrats will work with Republicans to “torpedo healthcare reform unless he gets a vote to strip abortion-related provisions out of the House bill,” as reported by The Hill. That sounded like good news, but … More

    Pelosi Perturbed by Pro-Life Dem

    It looks like Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) isn’t happy with Democrat Rep. Bart Stupak’s efforts to make sure that taxpayer dollars do not pay for abortions in any new health care plan and, according to The Hill, “he may work with Republicans to torpedo healthcare reform unless he gets a … More

    Hatch Criticizes Health Care "Shell Game"

    The health care bill that emerged from the Senate Finance Committee this week will not pass the Senate in its current form if Democrat leadership comply with procedural rules, Sen.

    40 House Democrats Spreading "Bogus Claims" About Abortion

    Throughout his sales pitch to the American people, President Barack Obama has always insisted that his health care plan would not use taxpayer funds to pay for abortions. This despite the fact that President Obama promised Planned Parenthood the exact opposite in 2007. During his September 9th address to Congress, … More

    Obama Speech Fact Check

    Fact checking President Barack Obama’s health care speech from last night, the Associated Press reports: “The president’s speech to Congress contained a variety of oversimplifications and omissions in laying out what he wants to do about health insurance.” That is an understatement. We counted no less than 10 spurious claims … More
