Stupak & 3962: My Take

Polico says Pelosi has the votes.

The Catholic Key Twitter site says:

"The NOs have it on voice vote for Stupak Amendment. Roll Call vote apparently delayed until consideration of Repub. Sub."

That's interesting. Voice votes mean don't mean much, but if Pelosi indeed has the votes, and the Dems know it, of course Stupak will fail. They don't need it for cover anymore.

Our best outcome would be Stupak passing and then 3962 failing, but that's impossible.

Worst outcome would be Stupak passing, 3962 passing, because Stupak will be gutted in conference anyway.

Fighting chance outcome will be Stupak failing, 3962 passing, because it will clarify the issue.
