The New York Times reports of the emerging Democratic contingency plan for passing a health care bill if Scott Brown wins. The idea is to avoid another go around in the Senate, and have the House simply approve the Senate version with no changes. But Rep. Bart Stupak, who voted for the original House bill only after it adopted his abortion language that was rejected in the Senate, poured cold water on the idea:
In an interview on Monday, Representative Bart Stupak, Democrat of Michigan, who opposes the Senate bill because of provisions related to insurance coverage of abortions, said: “House members will not vote for the Senate bill. There’s no interest in that.”
When the idea was suggested at a meeting of the House Democratic Caucus last week, Mr. Stupak said, “It went over like a lead balloon.”
“Why would any House member vote for the Senate bill, which is loaded with special-interest provisions for certain states?” Mr. Stupak asked. “That’s not health care.”
