The League of Extraordinarily Repulsive Gentlemen:
Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) pledged on Tuesday morning to defeat healthcare reform legislation if his abortion amendment is taken out, saying 10 to 20 anti-abortion-rights Democrats would vote against a bill with weaker language.
“They’re not going to take it out,” Stupak said on “Fox and Friends,”
Yes, on Fox and Friends, the nation's premiere show for stories of Sarah Palin riding a dinosaur (the Palinolithic Era) before field dressing it -- it's full of meat after all.
And who else is ol' Bart hanging with?
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) told Politics Daily Tuesday that he plans to introduce an amendment to the Senate health care reform bill similar to the amendment by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) that was attached to the House health care reform bill.
Of course he will. I'll let Tom Tomorrow summarize it from here.
