Wicker: Debt-limit vote is unlikely vehicle for abortion bill

Anti-abortion legislation probably won’t be tied to a vote on the debt limit, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) said.

Some House Republicans suggested earlier in the week that the debt ceiling could provide an opening to at least force a Senate vote on the abortion bill. But it’s more likely that riders on the debt vote “will deal with financial matters, rather than this,” Wicker said.
