We’re in for the fight of our lives trying to make sense of what is going on and you have to get in your hatred for Romney on every thread. Gee, where are your Rudy-in-a-dress pics? It’s all so old. Get a new act already!
That’s what I think.
The Stupak language was already rejected by the Senate—I think it could only get 45 votes. So if he thinks his language will be adopted by the Senate he’s either a fool or a sellout.
This is a “lie.” Stupak will stand up for what he believes on this issue. The Democrats will not compromise at all. The pro death issue is too important for the Democrats to give anything to Stupak.
Stupak will be the MVP at the end of the day. Mark my words.
Yeah, I was hoping that it was like an Amendment - in that once the House adopted it changes would be immediately made. However, I think you are right that this would only take effect if both houses agree. In which case, this would be a bad thing since whether it passed both houses or died in the Senate the Senate bill would still become law in the end.
is this a new story update?
“Stupak will be the MVP at the end of the day. Mark my words.”
I pray you are right. I think that’s why Lipinski is hanging tough with him....he’s a Chicago Dem!
What I meant was that for about 30 minutes that article was not appearing when linking to www.firedoglake.com, as it should have and does now. It was only accessible using the link you posted. I was beginning to question whether it was hacked.
Did you know this Jane Hamster ...Firedoglake is a far left liberal?
She works with MoveOn for goodness sakes.
Something that disturbs me is this Jane Hamster is a leftie. I will not read anything else with her name on it. She's pushing this crap in this article because she wants health care to pass with no abortion funding killed. She lied, Stupak made no deal yet with the witch.
People should check these sites out and see who they are before believing everything posted here.
Yeah, I'm ticked at this false info presented in this article.
My above post shows she works with MoveOn!
Thank You truthandlife!
The Left on Stupak Negotiations [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
Firedoglake purports to have some leakage.
National Review: The Corner
Even Lopez wasn't buying it. We have been seeing breathless headlines like "Pelosi says she has the votes." Duh... she has been saying that for...weeks? Why any reporter is trusting the words of a frantic, desperate, proven liar or her minions is beyond me. Whatever happened to independent sources, multiple confirmations...
Isn't Move on.org sponsored by Soros?
Gad this makes me mad.
“They gain the Stupak 12 but lose 40 pro abortion votes if I understand this correctly.”
The hard-core lefties ALL folded like cheap suits on this and voted FOR the House bill WITH Stupak in it.
The only good news here is that pelosi would only be dealing with Stupak if she didnt have the votes otherwise.
The BAD news is that this is an absurd contraption that will NOT WORK. Stupak is nuts to fall for it.
The fight is not over, even if passed this Sunday. Keep your heads up and maintain your fighting spirit. This is far from over.

Chaos: Pelosi reaches deal with Stupak for Senate abortion vote?

“Makes no sense.”
A friend of the site e-mailed us about an hour ago to say that he spoke to a Democratic congressman hes pals with earlier tonight. Quote:
“He tells me with certainty that they have plenty of votes and that some yes votes will be allowed to vote no if they choose for their protection. He says that everyones internal polling has been much better than expected. He says at this point that last sticking point is whether to give Stupak a separate vote, which Pelosi is considering.”
Exit question: Is this all just lefty spin being fed to Firedoglake by peeved pro-choicers? Well find out at Stupaks presser tomorrow. 11 a.m.!
That's because they knew the Senate would strip it out. They were assured of that ahead of time. Repeating the same cycle gets them nowhere. If it can't pass now WITHOUT the Stupak amendment, it never will pass.
