It looks like Senator Ben nelson has started barking again on the abortion feature of the Senate health reform bill:
In an interview Thursday with a Nebraska radio station, Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) said new compromise language on abortion funding is unacceptable.
As usual, however, he’s not coming completely out from beneath the porch:
‘As it is right now, without further modifications, it isn’t sufficient,’ Nelson told KLIN radio in Lincoln, NE.
So, what does “as it is right now” mean? Is he holding out for a bigger payoff? Does he want a written guarantee there won’t be any base closings?
I don’t recommend celebrating just yet, folks. This particular Blue Dog is no Joe Lieberman. My bet is that he’ll scurry back under the porch … again.
Morrissey actually takes Nelson seriously:
Nelson’s driving a stake through the heart of ObamaCare. Looks like Barack Obama has his pretext for skipping Copenhagen.
