Only in liberal bizarro world is it considered immoral not to throw hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars at the nation’s largest abortion provider.
(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said a Republican appropriations bill that would defund the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Planned Parenthood is “an immorality.”
On Wednesday, Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.), chairman of the House Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, introduced legislation for fiscal year 2013 that would cut $6.3 billion and prohibit any further funding to implement the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamcare, and would also cut off federal funds that go to Planned Parenthood, an abortion provider that performed 329,445 abortions in 2010.
Pelosi called Rehberg’s bill “destructive.”
At a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, a reporter asked Pelosi: “One of the issues in that bill this year is to defund the Affordable Care Act. Many Republicans have sent a letter to the Speaker [John Boehner] saying that they would not — urging him not to put a bill on the floor that would not defund the healthcare law. How do you see that issue playing out as we get to the fall, when we get to September 30, and forcing the issue of keeping government open?”
Pelosi said, “The defunding of Planned Parenthood, which is part of what their mark-up was about, was it yesterday that they officially marked up? Yesterday, that was, I know was in the mix, I didn’t know if they were finished with it, that mark up.”
