In a move that will intensify the coming war over how to treat abortion in the health care bill, more than three dozen House Dems have signed a letter to Nancy Pelosi firmly pledging to vote against the bill if it contains an anti-abortion amendment.
A source sends over a working copy of the letter without the signatories, and the source says it currently bears the signatures of 41 House Dems. They’re all vowing to vote No on a bill if it contains the Stupak amendment — enough to sink the bill: [...]

More moonbats going after the killing of the unborn as we allow the Jihadis to run around inside this Nation all on their own. Sounds like a plan, doesn't it? More at Hot Air...

Some folks we don't have to pay for this unconstitutional federal health care Bill: Coburn to Senate: You Actually Have to Pay For These Bills. Coburn says we do. Who's right or, who's wrong?
I have some "or else" these fools can grab a hold of.
