We have seen President Donald Trump take off in his first few days in office, ensuring that every campaign promise he made to Americans is fulfilled. He has done an extraordinary amount of work in just days – a dramatic change from Obama doing nothing for the past eight years!
Meanwhile, President Trump’s Republican Congress has also taken their campaign vows seriously. Both the House and the Senate have done well in communicating their plans, especially as they work to repeal and replace Obamacare. Basically, they are going to do everything they can to allow Americans to obtain their rights given them in the Declaration of Independence: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
This week, the House made sure that everyone’s rights to life will be maintained.
From Allen B. West:
Most of the attention given to Congress has focused on the various proposals for repealing Obamacare or appropriating funds to build the border wall with Mexico. However, legislators on Capitol Hill have now passed legislation that will help Trump keep another campaign promise. From Live Action News:
Today [Tuesday], January 24, 2017, the United States House of Representatives passed H.R.7 by a vote of 238 to 183, making the Hyde Amendment permanent. The Hyde Amendment prohibits taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions through Medicaid.
We are a pro-life Congress,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan in a statement. “Today we renewed our commitment to the Hyde Amendment with the passage of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. I want to thank Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) for his tireless commitment to this cause. This legislation protects the conscience of American taxpayers by ensuring that not a single dollar of their hard-earned money goes to fund abortions. As hundreds of thousands of Americans flock to Washington for the March for Life, we must never forget that defending all of our people – especially the defenseless – must be our top priority if we want to be a good and moral nation.”
President Trump has made it known that pro-life issues are some of the most important to him, even signing an executive order that banned federal funds from being used to promote abortions overseas. Now Congress is helping keep that promise by making a provision permanent that bans taxpayer funding for abortion at home.
I am thrilled to see that both President Trump and the House has led the charge in saving the lives of the unborn, who are America’s future!
