Rep. Bart Stupak has an interesting little piece in Newsweek entitled “Health Care Hell”.
Stupak was beat up by all sides during the health care debate. It sounds like he wanted to vote for reform but couldn’t work out a compromise with pro-life groups.
Here’s the telling paragraph:
That call changed my relationship with the pro-life movement. In the 18 years I’ve been in Congress, pro-life Democrats like me have delivered, working out compromises that protect human life. Now we had the most important piece of legislation for our movement yet—with pregnancy prevention, prenatal and postnatal care, and care for kids—and we couldn’t get support.
The article is a bit self-aggrandizing, but the man definitely feels run down.
