Stupak: From Prolife Groups' Hero to Villain 'In a Nanosecond'

Mar. 22, 2010 - Representative Bart Stupak was a hero in pro-life circles for leading a small block of Democrat congressmen in opposition of the health care bill's funding of abortions.
But when Stupak and other pro-life Democrats agreed to back the bill in exchange for an executive order stating that no federal funds could be used for abortion, the Michigan Congressman instantly became persona non grata.
Pro-lifers generally feel that the President's executive order will have little or no effect against the legal verbage of the bill itself which was passed with a very narrow margin. Had Stupak and his group kept their promise to vote against it, the bill would have failed.

Brown Win Forces Democrats to Re-Evaluate Health Care Reform Game Plan

Jan. 20, 2010 - The surprise victory of Republican Scott Brown for the Massachussetts Senate seat formerly held by Ted Kennedy will force Democrats to re-evaluate their plans for health care reform and other big-spending bills.
Brown's win Tuesday is a colossal hit to Democrats, since it will break the party's 60-vote, filibuster-proof majority in the Senate at a time when health care reform is in its final stages. Brown has vowed to vote against the bill if he gets the chance.
Democrats had considered ways to fast-track the legislation and pass some version of it before Brown is sworn in, but shocked Senators are realizing that that approach will make them more unpopular with their own constituents.
Editor's note: We sense a resurgence of morality, and hopefully a revival of faith and belief in prayer in our nation.

Democrats Plot Healthcare End Run if GOP Wins in Massachusetts

Jan. 18, 2010 - New strategies are being considered by congressional democrats to deal with the healthcare bill that they want to adopt. Senate and House versions need to be reconcilled, but if a special election in Massachussetts tomorrow results in a Republican win, the Senate will not have the 60 vote margin they need to pass the final bill.
Aides worked frantically Sunday amid fears that Republican Scott Brown will defeat Democrat Martha Coakley in the special election to fill the late Edward M. Kennedy's seat. A Brown win would give the GOP 41 Senate votes.
Various fallback strategies are being considered by the Demomcrats. One plan would be to convince the House of Representatives to approve the bill that the Senate passed before the House made changes. House Democrats do not like that idea, but they may decide that a flawed bill is better than no bill.
