Speaker Pelosi is rapidly proving herself to be one of the strongest voices in all of Congress. To wit:
I think it’s really important to note, though, and I want the record to show—because two statements were made here that are not factual in relationship to these bills: My colleague, Leader Boehner, the law of the land is there’s no public funding for abortion and there is no public funding of abortion in these bills. And I don’ t want our listeners or viewers to get the wrong impression from what you said. Mr. Camp, you said that Medicare cuts in this bill cut benefits for seniors. They do not. They do not. So, I want the record to show, just in those two cases… we may have differences of opinion and approach and evaluation of different things. But, certain things are facts about our bills that I cannot let the opposite view stand when they are stated.
