    Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) said the White House and the Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives have been pressuring him not to speak out on the "compromise" abortion language in the Senate version of the health care bill.

    “They think I shouldn’t be expressing my views on this bill until they get a chance to try to sell me the language,” Stupak told in an interview on Tuesday. “Well, I don’t need anyone to sell me the language. I can read it. I’ve seen it. I’ve worked with it. I know what it says. I don’t need to have a conference with the White House. I have the legislation in front of me here.”

    Yes, well this is the same Stupak that offered the amendment that prevented the bill from dying long ago.

    If he wanted to ensure that no abortion funding would be provided under the figleaf of "healthcare" than he should have let the bill die of a natural death back then instead of prolonging it with extraordinary artificial means.
