The Washington Times nails
the guy who got the government health care bill passed. The long piece has some useful details.
The last-minute negotiations over the government health care bill made one thing clear: Without Mr. Stupak and other ostensibly pro-life Democrats, the bill did not have enough votes. The final vote count was 219 to 212, and without the eight Democrats who caved to pressure with Mr. Stupak, the bill would have been defeated, 220 to 211. And make no mistake about it, these sellouts did not wean any concessions from the White House. President Obama's much-ballyhooed executive order gave the Democrat holdouts nothing more than was already in the Senate bill. . . .
