House Speaker Nancy Pelosi along with her fellow Democrats pushed to include a way to guarantee federal funding for abortion into the Coronavirus response bill.
Daily Caller reports that White House officials alleged Nancy Pelosi tried to sneak in several provisions that favored Democrats and stalled bipartisan efforts during her negotiations with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
Daily Caller reports:
Speaking to the Daily Caller, those officials alleged that while negotiating the stimulus with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Pelosi tried to lobby for “several” provisions that stalled bipartisan commitment to the effort. One was a mandate for up to $1 billion to reimburse laboratory claims, which White House officials say would set a precedent of health spending without protections outlined in the Hyde Amendment.
The Hyde Amendment blocks clinics that perform abortions from receiving federal funding, and Democrats have pushed the Trump administration to end it since he was elected in 2016.
“A new mandatory funding stream that does not have Hyde protections would be unprecedented,” one White House official explained. “Under the guise of protecting people, Speaker Pelosi is working to make sure taxpayer dollars are spent covering abortion — which is not only backwards, but goes against historical norms.”
Politico reports that the Hyde Amendment provision was removed from the Coronavirus response bill.
VIA Gateway Pundit:
The two sides resolved issues over federal funding of abortion in a separate bill that will also hit the floor, Politico reported.
Tyrant Pelosi on Thursday made it clear during her weekly presser that it’s her way or nothing when it comes to addressing the Coronavirus.
Pelosi smacked her hand on the lectern as she told reporters that she is not willing to negotiate with Republicans and work with them on a Coronavirus response bill.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pushed back on Pelosi and let her know the Republicans were not going to support a Coronavirus bill that included federal funding for abortion and other left-wing causes.
A “my way or the highway” approach is not the right way to handle a serious health epidemic, McCarthy said.
Nancy Pelosi held up a vote on Coronavirus two weeks ago so that Democrats could run ads against Republicans on Super Tuesday.
Then she tried to ram federal funding for abortion into an important Coronavirus bill
