Tomorrow will bring a health care bill vote, and Nancy Pelosi continues to show her true pro-abortion colors. She continues to reveal that she has no interest in the will of the people who have overwhelmingly indicated that we do not want government between us and our doctors. Today she rejected the Stupak abortion solution. Pelosi has no respect for pro-life anybody--not the unborn, not the American people, and not even the colleagues in her own party.
And we already know where President Obama stands on the issue of life. He believes the "when does life begin?" question is "above [his] pay grade." He didn't even vote to provide health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion. Sick! If he can't do right by a defenseless newborn, what in the world do you expect he'll do with you?
These are the people we want in charge of our health care?! God, help us.
According to the Washington Post:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Saturday rejected an offer to hold a separate vote on abortion provisions in the sweeping health-care legislation, setting the stage for the final talks with the last Democratic holdouts.Read the rest here.
Pelosi told reporters that she rejected the solution offered by Rep. Bart Stupak (Mich.), the leading antiabortion Democrat who proposed passing separate, strict language that would clarify that no federal funds in the proposed legislation could go toward abortion coverage.
Asked if a vote was coming, Pelosi declared no extra votes would be held to appease antiabortion Democrats or liberals still hopeful for adding their favored causes. "Not on abortion, not on public option, not on single payer, not on anything," Pelosi said. She later added, "The bill is the bill."
Democrats are close to securing the 216 votes needed for a majority when the vote is held Sunday evening, but the last bloc of holdouts are antiabortion Democrats.
Governor Palin has been fighting on behalf of the American people, imploring us to get involved and do everything we can to stop a government takeover of health care.
Earlier today she tweeted:
Shocking new questions re:whether military healthcare plans r protected under Obamacare.How will underpaid troops afford their own purchase?
She followed that up with a link to that very story. Click here to read it.
November is coming, as the governor shared yesterday in her Facebook note, the same note where she asked us to sign the November is Coming petition to let Congress know we mean business. Click here to do so.
In no uncertain terms, tell them:
Dear Member of Congress:(H/T) Motorcitytimes
Your vote isn't the only one that counts. November is coming and you can't hide from the voters. Corrupt backroom deals are driving a government takeover of our health care, and I don't like it. If you vote YES on the health care bill, I will vote NO on you in the next election.
