President Joe Biden has eased off a pre-midterm election pledge now that the votes are nearly all in and it looks as though one chamber of Congress will be led by Republicans come January. In remarks to reporters this week, Biden backed away from a pledge to codify abortion within federal law.
“Mr. President, what should Americans expect from Congress as it relates to abortion rights after the midterms?” NBC’s Peter Alexander hollered at Biden during a question-and-answer period following his remarks with Chinese President Xi Jinping during a pre-G20 summit in Indonesia.
