There is much to be amazed about in the full-court press by Democrats to ram through the health care takeover bill.
They are not going to be hampered by any rules, including the rules of decency.
But this sets some kind of record.
Rep. Bart Stupak is a holdout Democrat, fighting to keep out federal funding of abortions, which is in the Senate bill. He is not optimistic. Nancy Pelosi and company have been able to peel away a couple of the 12 votes pledged to his stance.
What is the argument the Democrat leadership offers?
“If you pass the Stupak amendment, more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more. That’s one of the arguments I’ve been hearing,” Stupak told National Review.
That is, if more unborn children are not killed it will increase the costs. Hiding the cost is a major part of the Democrat strategy.
This is the ugliest political fight ever. If the liberals succeed, there will be an enormous backlash as people learn what has been done to them.
