Senate committee rejects amendments on abortion and illegal immigration

The president has insisted that his health care plan will not cover abortion, and it will not insure illegal immigrants. Anything to the contrary, he says, is a lie.

Today, the Senate Finance Committee had a chance to back up that pledge. It did not. It voted, largely along party lines, against an amendment to bar federal funding for abortion. And it voted, along party lines, against an amendment to proof of identity when singing up for federal healthcare programs.

It’s not for no reason that the public doesn’t believe the president.
