Bart Stupak is happy to blow up health care reform, denying countless people medical care and hence unnecessary illness and death, if access to abortion can't be made more inequitable. Just another reminder, pace Charles Lane, who actually stands in the way of a health care bill.
In other news, Jay Rockefeller now seems to oppose the public option because it would be too "partisan." Yes, it would be a shame if excessive partisanship caused the number of possible GOP votes in the Senate for health care legislation to go from zero to zero. (And, yes, this really is a case where Obama deserves considerable blame for a lack of leadership.)
