  • What!!!??? I thought it was the Republicans that were the problem!!!!

    It is nice to see people stand by their principles. If we don't stand up for what we believe in, who will?

  • Michigan Rep. Bart Stupak said Thursday he's counted 11 Democratic lawmakers in addition to himself who are willing to kill President Obama's health care overhaul over abortion language.

    Stupak sponsored a provision in the House of Representatives' health care bill, which passed last fall, that clearly prohibits the use of federal money to pay for abortions. That language did not make it into the Senate bill, the model Obama is using to craft the plan he is expected to send to Congress shortly.

    "We're not gonna vote for this bill with that kind of language in there," Stupak said Thursday in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America."

    "I want to see health care, but we're not gonna bypass some principles and belief that we feel strongly about," he said, adding that he's "prepared to take responsibility" for bringing down the bill.

  • TWELVE DEMOCRATS willing to kill this bill, very interesting.  If this bill fails, you can understand why.  Obama can't get his own party to stand with him on it.

  • Well, I think if this so-called health care bill is passed it will be a horrible thing for our country and I pray it doesn't.

  • Special, the Republicans are only a problem because he can't get the Democrats on board. Frankly, the Democrats are so reluctant that he NEEDS some Republicans to flip in order to get this passed.
