MSNBC is reporting that Stupak is now voting "yes" for HCR. Baird and Giffords are also reportedly "yes" votes as well.

CSPAN reported on MSNBC's report just a few moments later.

Information on why he switched his vote is slowly coming out. It appears that he was promised an Executive Order from Obama upholding the Hyde Amendment.

What did Dems give up for his yes vote if anything? Or, did he flip because he saw the writing on the wall and felt threatened by Connie's challenge?

Here's a little more:

MSNBC's Mike Viqueira: "Many of these Democratic leaders are now ensconced in Speaker Pelosi's office. They think they have an agreement with Bart Stupak. Remember, he was here at the White House very late last night trying to work out language for an executive order to clarify and affirm the president's position with regard to abortion language... They think they have the Stupak 8

But can this language go too far for the pro-choice members of the house to sign off on?

UPDATE: Bart Stupak is holding his presser at 4 PM EST.
