A loss for fiscal conservatives like myself, but hopefully a victory for the unborn.
WASHINGTON, D.C., November 7, 2009 11:15 p.m. Eastern Time (LifeSiteNews.com) - The U.S. House passed the historic health care reform bill Saturday evening by a very close 220 to 215 vote. The Democrats needed 218 votes to pass the bill. One Republican voted for the bill.
The bill includes the Stupak Amendment which basically contains the provisions of the long standing Hyde Amendment prohibiting any coverage of elective abortion by a government program.
The bill still requires approval by the Senate.
Though I have doubts that the pro-choice fanatics that make up the Senate Democrats (including phony Catholics like Nancy Pelosi) will allow it to pass with the Stupak Amendment.
