I can’t believe these people. Now the big deal is whether the wording in one bill or the other might somehow increase the number of federally funded abortions.
WTF is wrong with these people?
Both bills bend over backwards to make it clear that federal subsidy dollars are not to pay for insurance which covers elective abortions. As far as I can see the Hyde Amendment restrictions remain in place.
The problem appears to be different language. The House bill says premiums for insurance covering abortions must be paid for separately and the Senate bill requires a different policy. This is what is now preventing Health Care Reform from becoming a reality.
Give me a God damned break. Jesus, Joseph and Mary but you have GOT to be kidding me. Can somebody please write a simple English sentence making it clear that the Hyde Amendment restrictions trump anything else that might be implied or open to interpretation in the bill?
There is clearly no intent to change federal abortion policy. Can’t we get that properly articulated?
This is what we get for electing God damned lawyers to run things. Talk about dumb. Does everyone become a complete idiot when they move to D.C.?
