Stupak Holds All The Power, Maybe...

Once again, it comes down to the anti-abortion coalition within the Democrat party, headed by Bart Stupak (emphasis mine):
There have been various reports on Sunday that Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) and other anti-abortion lawmakers have agreed to an abortion deal involving an executive order from the Obama administration. However, Stupak's office are strongly denying those reports.

Even though several Democratic leaders said they had the votes on Saturday, Stupak said on Sunday he and others were involved in intense negotiations with the White House late on Saturday night. The Saturday night talks strongly suggest Democrats are short of the 216 necessary.

On Sunday morning, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said Democratic leaders did not have 216 hard commitments.

Some believe there are a few lawmakers on The Hill's Firm No, Leaning No, Likely No list who could vote yes, including Reps. Marion Berry (Ark.), Rick Boucher (Va.) and Mike McMahon (N.Y.) and perhaps others.

The problem for Pelosi is that is she gets Stupak on board, she may lose abortion rights legislators, such as Rep. Mike Quigley (Ill.).

Keep praying to the G_d of free markets and private medicine, this thing ain't over yet.

Barry the Pimp will promise whatever it takes, to get Bela Pelosi's Party of Whores to line up for their freebies, at our expense. Command and control marxism is on parade, kids. Stupak will cave.


Bite me, Janet.

It's getting downright scary out there, Skunks. I am reading multiple blogs advocating armed revolution should the bill pass. People are quoting a citing the Constitution, Founding Fathers and military leaders.
I don't think this is going to end well.

For the record, unfunded entitlements is already the largest long term threat to the United States. How about we add another create another unfunded entitlement to the tune of $562 billion over the next decade. Effing brilliant.

Bite me, Janet. Unless I bite you first.
