Way to take a stand, Nan.

Offered without comment:
She said members may be talking about various things and dismissively mentioned Stupak’s name, adding, “But right now we are just getting votes to pass a bill.”

“This bill is about health care and not about abortion," Pelosi said. “There will be no further changes in the bill.”
-- 3.19.10, 11:45am
According to a member of Congress who was briefed on the matter, Pelosi has agreed to let Stupak have a vote on his amendment either before or after the House votes to pass the Senate bill. It instructs the Senate to substitute the language in his amendment for the Senate language on abortion. -- 3.19.10, 7:30pm
Update: No deal.
