Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell warned Thursday of the “nightmare” that President Joe Biden and Democrat leaders are trying to push on the American people.
Life News reports:
“This week, Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee are doing something so radical that it hasn’t been done for decades: They are advancing an annual funding bill that leaves out the Hyde Amendment, the commonsense prohibition on forcing taxpayers to fund abortion,” the Kentucky Republican leader said.
For decades, “a broad, bipartisan coalition agreed the American taxpayer should not be forced to underwrite this nightmare. And by the way, a strong majority of Americans still agree!” McConnell said.
“’Those of us who are opposed to abortion should not be compelled to pay for them,’” he quoted Biden.
“He let the demands of the increasingly radical left overcome a principle he’d held for decades,” McConnell said. “In today’s Democratic party, there is no room to dissent from the far left’s culture war — even in the most modest, most longstanding, and most widely popular ways.”
“Senate Republicans are going to continue standing up for life, standing up for taxpayers, and standing up for the conscience rights of millions of Americans who don’t want the government laundering their hard-earned money to abortion providers,” McConnell concluded.
