First Topic – Health Care’s Final Push: Will the Pro-Life Democrats Hold Strong?
President Barack Obama may have delayed his trip this week to Asia pending a vote on health care reform, but it's Congressman Bart Stupak who might be taking insurance reform by way of Shanghai. Five months after the House passed a slim 220-215 vote to pass their version of health care reform, three months after the Senate gritted through a pre-Christmas 58-39 tally, the state of reforming the American health care system largely resides upon a two-page document authored by the Democrat representative from Menominee. The Stupak Amendment — authored by the namesake Democrat from MI — that requires women to purchase an additional insurance rider under the House bill has ignited a nationwide debate about whether federal tax dollars would be allowed to fund abortion under health care reform. We talk to Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List.
