Be Informed

I'm getting questions from here and there. It is my premise that the vote to strip abortion out of the Health Destruction bill allowed the bill to pass the House. Well a lot of Right thinking people have questioned that premise. They ask me, "how can you know for sure?" Well I can't. But the Philadelphia Enquirerer can.

The House restrictions, offered in an amendment by Rep. Bart Stupak (D., Mich.) and Joseph R. Pitts (R., Pa.), were the price that Speaker Nancy Pelosi - who supports abortion rights - paid to get a health-care bill passed, on a narrow 220-215 vote.
Eric at Classical Values who gave me the Enquirer link has more to say about what is going on in the Senate. Abortion. As far as I can tell at this point the bill couldn't have passed the House with abortion funding in it and it may be that it can't pass the Senate without abortion funding in it. Abortion!

You know it may just be that one million abortions a year saves us from this health care monstrosity. Cold. That. Yep. Or maybe the Republicans will figure a way to screw the pooch. It has happened before.

If you want to know how various critters in the House vote on abortion you can go here. Vote #4 on the chart was the most recent one in the House.

And you can look at previous Senate votes on abortion by going here.

You are incorrect. Stupak's deal with Pelosi was to allow a vote on the amendment. Stupak himself stated that was sufficient, even if the amendment didn't pass. I think it's clear that the bill would have passed regardless of how the vote turned out, but forcing the conference committee to strip it will sow dissension among the Democratic Party ranks and give cover to the Democratic Party Representatives to vote against in the final post-conference vote, after they've heard from their constituents.

We don't know any of this for sure, but I think it's sufficiently debatable that your dismissive condemnation is invalid.
