Some Hope to Add Abortion to Debt Vote

File Photo
Speaker John Boehner has thus far refused to make social issues central in his agenda, but the House today will briefly wade into the social wars of the 1990s, bringing up a controversial anti-abortion bill.

She also warned that tying abortion to the debt limit would be a mistake. Arguing the bill would strip individuals’ tax cuts if they purchase insurance that covers abortion, DeGette said bluntly, “If they try to tie the debt limit to raising peoples’ taxes if they don’t buy the right insurance policies, I think that would be insane. I really do.”
