House GOP pushes abortion restrictions

Washington (CNN) - House Republicans are set to hold hearings this week on legislation restricting federal support for abortion, a move that has little support in the Democratic-controlled Senate or White House but one of enormous importance to the GOP's socially conservative base.

The House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing Tuesday on a bill that would make the restrictions in the Hyde Amendment permanent.

    What happened to all the talk about JOBS and the ECONOMY and cutting expenses once the "took the house back?" Now they are back on the worn out abortion issue. Did the Republicans lie about their intentions during the election campaign?

    And the American people believed the republicans when they said, "Jobs, jobs, jobs?" Two months into Boner Care and we got nothing to help Americans, only more crap to try to keep their stupid base confused.

    Considering that some of those guys do believe that there is such a thing as a 'non-forcible rape'... then I have my doubts about the quality of these hearings!
