Pelosi Nixes Any Side ‘Abortion Deals’

From The Hill:

Pelosi nixes side votes as Stupak talks end without abortion deal

By Jeffrey Young, Molly K. Hooper and Roxana Tiron – 03/20/10

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Saturday that she wouldn’t allow votes on any of the side deals – including abortion – that members were seeking in exchange for their votes for healthcare legislation.

The Speaker’s decree came as discussions with Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) had ended without the deal that Stupak was seeking, which was a separate vote on an “enrollment resolution” designed to force his abortion language into the healthcare bill before it was signed into law.

Pelosi and Stupak had a five-minute conversation on the floor during a late-morning series of votes, but Pelosi spent most of her time – both on the floor and in her office – working around Stupak by meeting privately with anti-abortion Democrats that she’s hoping to peel away from Stupak and place into the “yes” column…

Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), who led a parade of pro-abortion rights Democrats into Pelosi’s office Friday night after rumors circulated that the Speaker had agreed to give Stupak a separate vote, said Saturday that she and other members of the Pro-Choice Caucus essentially gave the Speaker an ultimatum she was powerless to overrule.

“We told the Speaker that we had somewhere between 40 and 55 votes against final passage if this language was included,” DeGette said

Remember how the White House and our watchdog media laughed at those who claimed there would be federally funded abortion in the healthcare reform bill?

Remember how baldly they lie every time they make any claim anything.

They are simply shameless, even pathological liars.

    Obama claimed to speak the same truth as Honest Abe Lincoln’s. When the democrats are lying through their forked tongues.

    Even that Duk-as running mate Fur-ball, kept lying on FOX that the federal govt can’t, and it’s not in the bill. Where has she been?

    Hello! One of Obama’s abomination’s first move was taking our taxes and paying for abortions in Africa !!!

    I never hear women say they can’t afford an abortion, or have problems coming up with the money. Planned parenthood makes a killing, $$$$

    …..” the Pro-Choice Caucus essentially gave the Speaker an ultimatum she was powerless to overrule”…..

    I’m calling bullshit on this whole article. It is designed as a distraction–nothing else.

    The “pro-baby butcher” caucus gave the speaker the cover she was looking for. None of these bitches cares one whit about anything but their own interests. If the same group, led by Mzzz. DeGette had threatened Pelosi with a Star-Kist Tuna boycott, I’m sure they would have seen how powerless Pelosi was. They would also have had their asses handed to themselves.

    But it makes for good theatre.

      John over at Huffing and Puffington they’ve actually rebranded pro-life to anti-choice.

      Good call on it being BS.

      Just like everyone said at the beginning, we can’t even really trust Stupak to stand with us here.

    Someone should show Nancy’s Grandkids the ‘Silent Scream’ website – they will be so proud!

  5. mathews says:

    the latest is NObama will sign an Executive Order prohibiting Federal Funds for Abortions if any of the Stupak 12 vote for NObamaCare. Ok what is wrong with this?? An Executive Order is NOT the Law of the Land and if the Law says Fund killing babies and Executive Order is SQUAT. An Executive Order may only enforce the Law not subvert it, however a NObama You Lie will subvert the truth. disagree?? if G.W. Bush wrote and Executive Order countermanding law the Liberal Socialist Democrat Saul Alinsky True Believers would have formally impeached.

      Once the bill is passed it’s passed. That is the sanity of pushing so much, so fast. And the 24/7 word changes the Democrats are doing are probably going on write now. They got spots tagged, and will be changing words like “may” & “should” to “must” & “will”.

    Pregnancy is now a priority 1 grave illness.
    But, those with heart failure or suffering cancer need not worry, since
    Obama already made partial-birth abortions legal, women can lie in the streets sick waiting for a cure from pregnancy up til 9 months of their illness, before they are fatally punished with a baby.
