Stupak Amendment Passes


Well isn't this lovely? 64 Democrats decided to sell out women's health with this horrid vote.

Final vote tally 240-194 with Shadegg voting present.

Word is it will be stripped out in committee. We'll see. I agree with Rayne over at FDL--Stupak Amendment Passes; 64 Dems Ask for Primary Opponents.

Final roll call for the Stupak amendment with the yeas and nays here.

And here's the roll call for the final bill. Ayes 220 with one Republican, Cao, voting yes, noes 215.
