Trouble for Obama: 12 Democrats Ready to Vote Against ObamaCare over Abortion Provision - Video 3/4/10
Trouble could be already brewing for President Obama to get his Health Care Bill passed in the House of Representatives. This video shows Democrat Rep. Bart Stupak talking to George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America today, where he flatly said that he and eleven other House Democrats who voted for the House Health Care Bill will NOT vote for ObamaCare this time around if language is not changed that would allow use of Federal Funds for abortion. Stupak wants explicit language that would prohibit use of Federal Funds for Abortion.
The House bill only passed by three votes, so 12 Democrats changing their votes would really put passage in jeopardy.
Stupak is standing on principle, and he told a shocked Stephanopoulos that he is prepared to take responsibility for bringing Obama's effort down if the abortion language is not changed.
How would that be if Obama does not even get a chance to use Reconciliation in the Senate because he can't muster enough Democrats to approve it in the House?!
