In a new turn out of event, Top ranking Democrat Nancy Pelosi was caught in the act trying to alter the Corona Virus bill by attempting to include potential funding for abortions.
According to multiple officials who were familiar with the matter, “while speaking to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin in a meeting, Nancy Pelosi had offered “several” ideas that would allow funding to facilities who perform abortions.”
The Daily Caller reported:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought to include a potential way to guarantee federal funding for abortion into the coronavirus economic stimulus plan, according to multiple senior White House officials.
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.
Pelosi’s action was denounced by so many including House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy.
