Next: Pelosi suggests that abortion opponents won't derail health bill


i think the health care plan should only help poor people pay for medication and not for abortion.

Pelosi continues to put out her insidious statements. She claims that abortion is not in the Bill. Not True, abortion is funded with taxpayer money in this Healthcare Reform Bill. At the 11th hour there was a Amendment that allowed for a direct appropriation of funds for Community Health Centers AKA Federally Qualified Health Centers. The Healthcare Reform Bill, the way it is funded, allows for circumventing the Hyde Amendment.
The Hyde Amendment is Federal Law that prevents federal funding for abortions.
In This Bill, that passed the Senate;the way it is written and funded, clearly will use Americans' Federal taxes for elective abortions. There are approximately(4)Four Thousand abortions each day in America. Pelosi's statements are patently false.

It is obvious that House Speaker Pelosi has not read the Healthcare Reform Bill.
Abortion is in the Bill plus Prez. Obama proposed increaseing the funding for Abortions in the Senate Bill.
There is one of two things happening, either Pelosi is lying or she is not coherent.

Move along! Nothing to see here, just an unhinged lady with a rapidly slipping grasp of reality. "I don't want this to turn into a debate"? Is she kidding? This would make better series than the West Wing! We've got payoffs, kickbacks, corruption, threats, intimidation, backstabbing, organized crime. Was this the Change and Hope America was looking for? I hope not. Been a heck of a week for the President!

Sen. Bunning was the body on the road to ObamaCare. The Obarracuda will require a new distraction. While the media discusses if there is meaning in his selection of a purple(SEIU) tie, he repeats in a louder voice, 'Stay the Course'. Our Congressional Representatives well get excellent healthcare from 'off shore'. They can smell the blood.
