A sad day for freedom in America. The Senate health care bill just passed the House by a 219 to 212 vote, with 34 Democrats voting “no.” Given the closeness of the vote, it means that the decision of Rep. Bart Stupak to cave on abortion put Democrats over the top.
Republicans are right now offering a “motion to recommit,” or send the reconciliation bill back to committee, with instructions to add the Stupak language. The idea is to force Democrats who already voted for the Stupak language in November into a tough vote.
UPDATE: The Republican motion to recommit has failed, 232 to 199.
UPDATE II: The reconciliation bill has passed, 220 to 211. That goes onto the Senate, but the Senate bill goes to Obama for his signature. So we get Obamacare either way.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
