Senate Health Care "Reform" Throws Women Under the Bus

It looks like Senate Majority Leader Reid had successfully thrown women under the bus to achieve his "non" reform health care package.
Under the new abortion provisions, states can opt out of allowing plans to cover abortion in the new insurance exchanges the bill would set up, to serve individuals who lack coverage through their jobs. Plus, enrollees in plans that do cover abortion procedures would pay for the coverage with separate checks -- one for abortion, one for the rest of any health-care services.

Nelson secured full federal funding for his state to expand Medicaid coverage to all individuals below 133 percent of the federal poverty level. Other states must pay a small portion of the additional cost.
So it wasn't enough to cave on abortion coverage, Reid had to bribe him with funding not available to the other 49 states. It's time for Nelson and Reid to go!

These guys don't seem to realize they can't win elections without women.

If the restrictions on abortion remain in the final bill, and the president signs the bill into law, women should do one of two things: Just stay home in 2010 ... OR, run for office against sitting Democrats who take us for granted.

As you complete your holiday shopping consider one more gift for yourself ... give to the National Organization for Women. The ONLY national organization standing up for ALL women.

2010 should be the year of Democratic primary challenges.

If people weren’t pissed enough at the power-drunk Dems before, they likely are now…

These tools like Nelson will soon regret the day they did this for Obama, he’ll pull all them right-over the abyss with him… and the coming GOP majority will just rescind it anyway-

Reaganite, you are on the wrong blog site if you think I'm going to agree with you. I'm disappointed in this bill because it's not: 1) single payer, 2) has no public option, 3) didn't expand Medicaide (at least), but most important 4) it didn't recind the terrible Hyde Amendment. That awful amendment must GO.

Get rid of Nelson. despite his faults. Reid did his best under impossible conditions. I'm not ready to throw him under the bus just yet. Let's see what Pelosi can do! :o(
