        "We came to the point where we actually had an agreement tonight, but it fell apart," Stupak said.

    Stupak (D-MI) has been making it clear that he would not vote for the healthcare bill if it included federally funded abortion.  He and Rep. Ellsworth (D-IN) have introduced an amendment to the bill that:

        * Explicitly prevents all federal tax dollars from being used to provide abortions in the public option;
        * Prohibits any funds from the US Treasury from paying for abortion services in any of the plans purchased through the proposed Health Insurance Exchange-private or public;
        * Establishes clear, strict rules for separating public funds from the premiums of private individuals (ensuring that no public funds  are ever used to pay for an abortion in any health plan offered on the Health Insurance Exchange);
        * Guarantees every American participating in the Health Insurance Exchange will always have access to a pro-life insurance option;
        * Expands conscience protections to prevent the government from discriminating against pro-life health insurance plans.  (Taken from Ellsworth's website.)

    But, taking to the floor this afternoon, Stupak signaled that he would indeed vote for the bill, and continued to encourage his Democrat friends to support his amendment.

    The bottom line is, Stupak sees nothing wrong with the government takeover of healthcare.

    Hot Air's Ed Morrissey describes the disgusting endorsement by the American Bishops of this monstrosity of a bill.

    Because one can't rely on what he says. Why people keep voting for him is a mystery.
