Update from Capitol Hill
Since President Barack Obama took office nearly 2 years ago, he’s been diligently working to enact policies and legislation that attack the very nature of our government and the sanctity of life. After a lengthy fight, pro-lifers narrowly lost the battle on healthcare reform. But pro-lifers on Capitol Hill are not discouraged. They are currently doing everything in their power to repeal this dangerous bill. And with the positive outlook of the November elections on the horizon, they believe a turning point could be coming for the pro-life movement.
Brad’s guests this week include:
Congressman Jim Jordan has been serving Ohio’s Fourth District for the past four years. Prior to his time in Congress, he was awarded the Defender of Life award from Ohio Right to Life. While serving in Congress, Jim has championed legislation in defense of the unborn and has helped lead the fight on pro-family issues.
Congressman Steve King is a representative for Iowa’s Fifth Congressional District. He is the ranking Republican on the Immigration Subcommittee and a member of the House Judiciary Committee. Congressman King discusses his plan to repeal the healthcare reform bill.
Wendy Wright, the president of Concerned Women for America, notes how President Obama’s actions since entering office, have earned him the title of the most pro-abortion president in our nation’s history.
Congresswoman Jean Schmidt has been representing Ohio’s Second Congressional District for the past five years. She discusses how Americans have grown dissatisfied with the US government. As a result, the pro-life movement has been re-energized and could give pro-life candidates an edge in November.
Representing North Carolina’s Third District is Congressman Walter B. Jones. The congressman is extremely optimistic that the November elections could prove a turning point for his party’s standing in Congress.
