P Junky was right. Stupak was grandstanding or did it say he got his wish?

The article from Politico.

White House, Bart Stupak reach abortion agreement - David Rogers and Patrick O'Connor and Jonathan Allen - POLITICO.com

The White House and anti-abortion Democrats have reached an agreement to defusethe controversy over abortion in the health reform bill – planning a series of steps that will secure the support of Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) and other Democrats to give party leaders the votes they need to pass reform, sources tell POLITICO.

Under the agreement, President Barack Obama would sign an executive order ensuring that no federal funding will go to pay for abortion under the health reform plans. In addition, Stupak will get to state his concerns about abortion funding in the bill during a colloquy on the House floor during the debate.

Luke Russert just said that Stupak has taken his fifteen minutes of fame and extended it for seven months.
He should be a laughing stock from now on.

I have to love some of the righties on this board.

"Obama's going to allow Abortion funding in this bill!"

*Obama and Bart sign a deal so that won't happen.*

"Obama caved! Obama caved! Hahahahaha!"

Keep moving that goalpost. :thup:

The Democratic Party is triumphant. The GOP remains the party of NO.

Do try to think it through logically, Dog. If Obama had had the votes without Stupak, he wouldn't have done a deal with him. He wanted public funding for abortion - to keep the rabid left happy. But, since he didn't have the votes, he had to do a deal with the devil. Now he has the votes but no abortion funding. So, in fact, Obama caved. See how that works? Surely, you aren't that dumb.
