  •  Killing the bill is what this is ABOUT (3+ / 0-)

     This isn't about abortion. Stupak's shifted the goalposts every time the Democratic leadership has worked to indulge his latest demand.

     Stupak's aim is to sink the bill. Abortion's just a pretext -- it's simply the framing device for media consumption.

     So there's really no "negotiating" with him.

     If the Democrats had actual core principles, this wouldn't be an issue. A person like Stupak would never get elected as a Democrat to begin with.

     But they don't. So we have a problem.
