Mr. LANDRY. Madam Speaker, this is not a divisive issue; this is a bipartisan issue. The language in H.R. 358 was in the Stupak-Pitts amendment passed in the Democrat-led House last Congress.

If they supported it then, why would they not support it now? Because of Executive order? Absolutely not.

ObamaCare created a fund specifically reserved for abortion coverage. So what in the world makes one think this money will not support abortion coverage? We all remember, ``We have to pass this bill before we find out what's in it.''

Unfortunately, they passed the bill, and we found no language to ensure taxpayers won't have to pay for something the majority of Americans don't support.

Madam Speaker, if my colleagues on the other side of the aisle insisted the health care law prohibits taxpayer funding for abortion, then they should support the bipartisan H.R. 358 to ensure that it is, indeed, the case.
