They Still Don't Have the Votes - UPDATE: Stupak Caves

Breaking Stupak Voting Yes? - Game over if true - Stupak denying this
Baird switches vote according to Fox -  The Dems must have twisted enough arms to get their votes.

The Hill reports conflicting accounts of where the vote stands right now:
In a sign of some uncertainty, though, heading into the vote, one of Democrats' chief deputy whips said Sunday that they may not have a hard head count with enough votes at this point.
"We don’t have a hard 216 right now," Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday."

She did express confidence that Dems would hit the number, adding, "I firmly believe we will have 216."

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told NBC’s "Meet the Press" that “there are still members who are looking at it and making up their mind, but we still think there are going to be 216-plus votes when we call the roll.”
 It will all come down to Stupak who claims he has 8 currently in his block.  He was scheduled to hold a press conference at Noon which was cancelled.  Who knows where they are exactly, but Dan Perrin claims to have sources on both sides saying they do not have the votes.

Jill has more on the sham executive order and Nice Deb has a plea from the Catholic Bishops not to pass the bill.  Katherine Lopez calls it a "dangerous non-binding show:"
The reality of this or any other text, though is: It is meaningless legally. It has no binding effect. I don't know a single lawyer with a working knowledge of the Constitution, Congress, and the Executive, who says otherwise.
Will update this post with news as it happens.  Check our group blog Potluck for news as well.

  1. Hi Mary Sue; It's just appalling that these people lie so much.
    Deep down, you can't trust a democRAT!
