Rep. Woolsey pushes back on anti-abortion health reform changes

Not a good point to toss into the currents of calculated confusion and induced paranoia about hate-crime threats to free pulpit speech, Lynn.

Rep. Lynn C. Woolsey (D-Cal.), co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, was displeased with the perfectly legal lobbying effort by the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops, who helped force anti-abortion health-reform compromises.

Although the USCCB wants health reform, but not abortion, she suggested a rewrite of IRS regulations governing nonprofit-group lobbying. They can lobby, you see, but not endorse candidates for public office.

We’re not voting her “least favorite person,” as American Papist did, but leave the rules alone. Play on.
