Joint Statement of Speaker of the House J. Dennis Hastert and House Majority Leader Tom DeLayTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
WASHINGTON, March 17 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Speaker of the House J. Dennis Hastert and House Majority Leader Tom DeLay today released the following statement:
"It's unconscionable that Senate Democrats led by Senators Harry Reid and Ron Wyden would not allow a vote to move forward on critical legislation the House passed last night to save and protect Terri Schiavo's life. House Republicans knew we had a moral obligation to act and we did just that last night. As Terri Schiavo lays helpless in Florida, one day away from the unthinkable and unforgivable, the Senate Democrats refused to join Republicans to act on her behalf."
