House Dems Pushing To Accept Senate Health Care Bill?

Plan B.

via Allah over at Twitter, and a commenter or two also I believe. Not sure, I don't know how to use the internets very well.

ALSO Unrelated but annoying, some French minister twit accuses US of occupying Haiti while we gear up to provide meaningful humanitarian aid, and Venezuelan twit echoes same.

ALSO ALSO Slublog puts me some f'n' knowledge with this (Times link),

In an interview on Monday, Representative Bart Stupak, Democrat of Michigan, who opposes the Senate bill in part because of provisions related to insurance coverage of abortions, said: “House members will not vote for the Senate bill. There’s no interest in that.”

When the idea was suggested at a meeting of the House Democratic Caucus last week, Mr. Stupak said, “It went over like a lead balloon.”

“Why would any House member vote for the Senate bill, which is loaded with special-interest provisions for certain states?” Mr. Stupak asked. “That’s not health care.”

In addition to his concerns about the abortion provisions, Mr. Stupak said the Senate bill does not do enough to improve the quality of health care, and it preserves the federal antitrust exemption for health insurance, which would be repealed under the House bill.

Not that I put any great faith in Bart Stupak. I don't think there's much they wouldn't do to get this crappy thing done, regardless of the outcome in Massachusett[e]s tomorrow.
