Roll Call — Hoyer Confident Health Care Will Pass With Pro-Abortion Senate Version

Hoyer was asked about comments from Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) in an Associated Press story that House leaders had decided to press ahead without changing the abortion restrictions. A group of anti-abortion-rights Democrats led by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) has been threatening to kill the bill over the issue.

“I don’t know that we’ve made a collective judgment on it, but I think his comments are accurate that we believe it’s not possible to do it through reconciliation,” Hoyer said.
