Pelosi: House Doesn't Have Votes for Pro-Abortion Senate Health Care Bill

Excellent news

Two days after voters in the liberal state of Massachusetts sent a message to Congress that even they don't want the pro-abortion health care bill, the House and Senate bills appear unlikely to go anywhere. Though no official decision has been made, Democrats and Obama officials are looking at starting over.

The Senate had approved a bill that would force taxpayers to finance abortions and that measure was expected to be the basis of a merged bill.

That was before Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown defeated pro-abortion stalwart Martha Coakley in a special election in Massachusetts.

Now, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi concedes the bill is apparently dead.

"I don't see the votes for it at this time," Pelosi told reporters during her weekly press conference. "The members have been very clear." Duh! You finally realize this? Did you not hear all the town halls this past summer and the polls since then? We DON'T want socialized healthcare!
