Elections Matter

Last evening the Senate defeated the Nelson/Hatch Ammendment which would have prohibited the use of federal funds to pay for abortions. The vote, largely along party lines was 54-45.

The two Republicans who voted against Nelson/Hatch were, not surprisingly Collins and Snowe of Maine. Six Democrats voted for the ammendment - Bayh (IN), Casey (PA), Conrad (ND), Dorgan (ND), Nelson (NE), and Pryor (AR).

Just 54 Senators voted to use your money to pay for abortions. Elections matter.

Sadly, I do believe a certain narcissistic Aryan would have applauded the defeat of this amendment along with the ever morally conscious-Reid. (And Olympia should just pull a "Jeffords" and be done with it)

Not sure why Snowe hangs on.

What is interesting is that a clear majority of Americans oppose the use of tax dollars to fund abortions but the pro-abortion liberals in congress are so driven by their twisted ideology and new found power that they simply can't resist.
