Finally, a Democrat standing up to liberal terrorism.
Representative Bart Stupak, Democrat of Michigan and a leader among House Democrats who oppose abortion rights, said on Thursday that President Obama needs to be “more flexible” on tightening abortion restrictions in the big health care legislation.
In a television interview, Mr. Stupak said that many House Democrats do not support the Senate version of the health care legislation that they would probably need to adopt before approving changes through a budget reconciliation measure.
“In the present form, the Senate health care bill is going nowhere in the House of Representatives,” Mr. Stupak said. “Not only do the members of the House of Representatives do not agree with the Senate bill — the process by which the Senate bill was passed, the special deals, there is no member that wants to vote for that.”
And he warned that House leaders had not yet explained the process by which House Democrats could approve both the Senate bill and a package of changes to it.
