Late Friday night Nancy Pelosi and the House of Representatives were burning the midnight oil trying to figure out a way to pass a health care bill. nancy-pelosi1 One problem remained, abortion. After years of pestering the democrats it once again reared its ugly head becoming a hurdle for the historic vote to take place.
