Pelosi annoyed on abortion - Live Pulse - POLITICO.com
I would say "fuck Pelosi"
But I would not wish that true torture on anyone..
Damn, that woman is a petulant child.
Kinda funny. She doesn't want a debate on abortion but there it is.
There are 10 or 11 Congressmen who will not go along with the healthcare bs because of abortion. They cannot "fix" the bill. So now what does Madame Speaker do??
I wonder if she can twist enough arms or make enough promises to change the minds of those that voted no on this boondoggle the first time??
How pursuasive is this smarmy woman?? Can she get the job done?? God. Sure hope not.
Hmm, 3 posts and no one discussing the bill. Interesting.
As if nobody is discussing the health bill in any number of threads on this board
There are hundreds of thread debating the bill. It's much more fun to just slap that bitch.
If she was annoyed, it was because some people like politico are being deliberately obtuse about it.
And yet when the government presumes authority to call the shots about what is and what is not health care and who will be required to have health care insurance whether they want it or not, it is relevant to those who care about abortion that it be clear whether health insurance will be required to cover abortion on demand.
And while there are all sorts of legitimate reasons for why health insurance should not be required to cover abortion on demand or ear piercings or tattoo removal or face lifts or anything else that does not constitute medical necessity, there are legitimate reasons to not require health insurance to not cover these things if they want to.
Frankly I don't think Pelosi gives a damn about healthcare or benefits to anybody receiving it or not receiving it. I think Pelosi doesn't want to admit that she can't get a bill passed. At this point I don't think she cares what is or isn't in it.
i saw stupak say straight up that if the language that was in the house bill regarding abortions was not part of the legislation, he and another 10 or 11 democrats would not vote for it. he pointed out that the hyde amendment would not apply to the pending bill because it is an act of congress and not just an appropriations bill. he was so straightforward that even that moron chris williams understood him.
