An executive order would be a win-win...
Edited on Sun Mar-21-10 02:18 PM by jenmito
Per MSNBC-The executive order will explicitly say that the health care bills passed by the house and senate would adhere to the Hyde amendment which says no federal funding would go towards abortion.

Lynn Woolsey and her pro-choice colleagues approve of this potential executive order and think it's a GOOD thing as do all the other Dem. congressmen speaking on MSNBC. So we'd get MORE than enough votes for this bill AND we'd have language re: abortion that some think is less restrictive than the current Nelson amendment.

3. The point is that this is not an abortion bill so the status quo should stay in place.
This executive order would make that clear.

6. I think you know that executive orders don't carry the power to create entire govt programs.

7. What's odd is why it is taking so long to announce (right now it is just speculation)?
Edited on Sun Mar-21-10 02:24 PM by denimgirly
Is Stupak trying to negotiate something more in the order?

10. The EO would NOT
affect the Nelson amendment. All it would do is to state what Stupak refuses to believe is already in there.
