Hmmm. DOA?

This gives hope . . . but I'm not holding my breath:

"The health care reform bill passed by the Senate on Christmas Eve appears to be dead on arrival in the House, as seven anti-abortion Democrats intend to join the ranks of lawmakers who plan to vote against the legislation, Fox News has confirmed.

Seven new no votes would be enough to kill the Senate bill, and several more fence-sitting lawmakers are under pressure from both sides of the aisle.

Foremost among the seven new no votes is Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., whose anti-abortion amendment to the House version of the legislation got the bill passed in that chamber last year."

We'll see how long Stupak holds out.


  1. We can hope...

    One way or another, I think this issue breaks Obama-- probably Reid too.

  2. I agree Yukio. This is very dangerous political territory for Obama. Reid, I think, is lost already.
