Pelosi Exposed Tried To Force Americans To Pay For Abortions Via The CV Stim Bill According to Report

By

If you trust The Daily Caller (another one of Facebook’s ‘fact checkers’):

‘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.

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.”

A second White House official referred to the provision as a “slush fund” and yet another questioned “what the Hyde Amendment and abortion have to do with protecting Americans from coronavirus?”’

While I am not one to put much faith in anonymous sources, this does seem to fit Pelosi’s MO of doing anything and everything she can to score political points and further her own personal agenda.  To be clear, we are not sayin this happened, we are reporting on what the DC said their sources told them happened.  Don’t fact check me bro.
