On the Cusp

I had big blogging plans for the weekend but didn't pull it off because I was with my two boys (7th and 3rd graders) in Washington, D.C. and just couldn't get to it. If you are reading this, you know all the big news. The deem and pass bad idea went away, now just a vote on the Senate bill and a vote on the reconciliation bill. And a deal was struck with Rep. Stupak whereby the President will issue an executive order that restates that federal money can't go for abortion. This has gotten the pro-life votes of Stupak's bloc, save apparently Rep. Lipinski from Illinois, I believe. The procedural votes have been getting around 220-24 votes in favor; it will take 216 to pass the bill.
