Boehner Says Protect Life Act Keeps Promise in GOP ‘Pledge to America’
By Edwin Mora October 13, 2011(CNSNews.com) -- House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) defended the Republican-led Protect Life Act legislation, which prohibits federal funds from being used to pay for any part of a health insurance plan that covers abortion under Obamacare, stressing that the bill fulfills a promise in the GOP’s 2010 Pledge to America.
At a press briefing on Capitol Hill today, a reporter asked Boehner, “Why spend time today on the Protect Life Act if it’s not going to go anywhere in the Senate -- it’s not a jobs bill?Boehner said: “We’ve done four, five solid job-creation bills this week and this [pro-life] bill was part of our Pledge to America. We’re keeping our word to the American people and we’re going to do it.”
The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the Protect Life Act today, Oct. 13.http://cnsnews.com/news/article/boe...-pledge-americaMy Comments: Watch what happens in the Senate. You can bet that Harry Reid will not even allow this bill to get a debate, let alone a vote.
Its ironic that our federal government allows illegals to flow across our borders, practically unchecked, and at the same time to finance the killing of the unborn of our own citizens.
