It’s hard not to read into this that he could vote yes on the Senate bill.
Rep. Bart Stupak said he expects to resume talks with House leaders this week in a quest for wording that would impose no new limits on abortion rights but also would not allow use of federal money for the procedure.
“I’m more optimistic than I was a week ago,” Stupak said in an interview between meetings with constituents in his northern Michigan district. He was hosting a town hall meeting Monday night at a local high school.
Okay Rep. Stupak, which is it? Either
- You will vote for the Senate bill as is and keep your fingers crossed that a bunch of known liars keep their promises, or
- You will agree to vote for the Senate bill with your amendment added back on and then let it go back to the Senate for a new vote.
There is a BIG difference between those two positions, so if you try to say they are equivalent you are full of baloney.
