White House Budget Director: Abortion funding is “one of the questions that is playing out” in the health care debate

From the NY Times:
An Obama administration official refused Sunday to rule out the possibility that federal tax money might be used to pay for abortions under proposed health care legislation.

Peter R. Orszag, the White House budget director, asked whether he was prepared to say that “no taxpayer money will go to pay for abortions,” answered: “I am not prepared to say explicitly that right now. It’s obviously a controversial issue, and it’s one of the questions that is playing out in this debate.”

UPDATE: Here's the transcript of the interview from FOX News.
