Here’s a good summary of what happened in the historic debate and vote today and tonight on PelosiCare. Our friends at Americans United for Life did an extraordinary job in securing a pro-life amendment–the Stupak/Pitts amendment that restricts federal funding for abortions (with some exceptions) in this bill. Unfortunately, even with the amendment, this is a disastrous piece of legislation and has more to do with a seismic shift in who we are as a people than it does with “reforming” health care.
Bottom line: Liberal Democrats received two more votes than the minimum required to move this socialist approach to health care forward. It passed 220-215, with one Republican voting for it. Now the attention will shift to the Senate.
Wisconsin Family Action did extensive Facebook/Twitter updates, as well.
