Obama, Democrats Make it Official: Reconciliation to Push Pro-Abortion Health Care

Barry and the Dems are going to ram this Obamacare down our throats.

Call your Senators and Representatives today!

President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress made it official today -- saying they will use the controversial reconciliation process to railroad the pro-abortion health care bill through Congress. Under the process, the House will attempt to pass the pro-abortion Senate health care bill.

Then, both the House and Senate will go back and approve the reconciliation bill that will make changes to the Senate measure designed to ensure House Democrats will support the bill. In the Senate, Republicans will not be able to filibuster it.

The reconciliation bill will not revoke the massive abortion funding under the Senate measure not correct any of the other pro-abortion problems with the bill.

In a speech at the White House, Obama launched his final push to get the pro-abortion health care bill approved and unveiled more changes for the reconciliation bill to twist arms for votes for the bill.

"The American people want to know if it's still possible for Washington to look out for their interests and their future," Obama said, despite polls showing Americans oppose the pro-abortion health care bill and abortion funding. "They are waiting for us to act. They are waiting for us to lead. And as long as I hold this office, I intend to provide that leadership."

"This is our proposal. This is where we've ended up. It’s an approach that has been debated and changed and I believe improved over the last year," Obama added, despite his own pledge not to have a bill that funds abortions.

"This is where we've ended up," he said about the final status of the Senate bill.

Message from Father Eunteneuer: Reform the CCHD Now!

Dear Friends in Christ,

Please join me in signing the Reform CCHD Now (RCN) petition here.

The language of the petition is very simple: "To ensure no more Catholic dollars are spent to support organizations advocating abortion or same-sex marriage, I respectfully request the bishops suspend all national CCHD grants until the grants process has been reformed."
