From the "See I Told You" File

From The Hill:

A House Democrat leader said Monday she's “confident” controversial language on abortion will be stripped from a final healthcare bill.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the Democrats’ chief deputy whip in the House, said that she and other pro-abortion rights lawmakers would work to strip the amendment included in the House health bill that bars federal funding from going to subsidize abortions.

“I am confident that when it comes back from the conference committee that that language won't be there,” Wasserman Schultz said during an appearance on MSNBC. “And I think we're all going to be working very hard, particularly the pro-choice members, to make sure that's the case.”

It is hardly news that those of the other viewpoint are seeking to change the language.

But we can pull a fast one on them, my friend. You need to join with me and demand the Senate simply pass the House bill. If that happens, there is no conference committee. The bill would go straight to the President's desk.

Democratic Leader Reid's office has already said a motion to substitute the House bill for the Senate bill would be allowed.

I have been told if only ten pro-life Republican senators will stand up for this action, the Demcorats can deliver the rest of the votes needed.
