(09:00 CST) The US House members are voting on the Stupak Amendment that would ban abortion funding from the democrat’s nationalized health care bill.
It’s a 15 minute vote.
Democrats will likely stuff abortion funding back into the bill after the nationalized health care legislation is passed. This vote was just a way for blue dogs to save face.
60+ dems vote for stripping abortion funding THAT WAS NEVER THERE, we were repeatedly told by Barack Obama.
