President Biden had promised his priority after the midterms was to codify the overturned Roe v. Wade decision establishing a right to abortion, but Monday he said the measure doesn’t have enough votes.

At the end of a Q&A in Indonesia with Chinese President Xi Jinping, NBC’s Peter Alexander yelled a question from the sidelines, asking what Americans should “expect from Congress as it relates to abortion rights after the midterms.”

“I don’t think they can expect much of anything other than we’re going to maintain our positions,” Biden said. “I’m not going to get into more questions. I shouldn’t even have answered your question.

“I don’t think there’s enough votes to codify, unless something happens unusual in the House,” said the president. “I think we’re going to get very close in the House. I think we’re going to be very close, but I don’t think we’re going to make it.”

The latest projection by NBC News has Republicans taking the House majority, with 219 seats to the Democrats’ 216.

In October, Biden said that if his party maintains the House and Senate, the “first bill I will send to the Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade.”

“And when Congress passes it, I’ll sign it in January, 50 years after Roe was first decided the law of the land,” he said.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
