Dirty little secret

For all the talk by the Democrats about the evil Republicans, the thing that they don't tell us (or at least only speak it in a whisper) is that they have the majority in the House and it was THEIR OWN PEOPLE -- 34 House Democrats voted "no" on the Senate-passed bill -- that they had to drag along kicking and screaming to get the bill passed 219-211.

For all his talk about the sanctity of life -- "a principle that meant more to us than anything" -- Bart Stupak and his coalition went down in a whimper of compromise.

H R 3590; Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, that the House agree to the Senate amendments
H R 4872; Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010
