• Sen. Ben Nelson Will Filibuster Any Health Care Plan That Is Not Hostile to Women's Rights

    Remember back when all the Republicans were screaming at the top of their lungs trying to warn us of the dangers of a Democratic super majority?

    That sure turned out to be a waste of breath

    Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) said Thursday that the need for stronger anti-abortion language in the Senate health care bill is "non-negotiable," and he would filibuster the legislation without it…

    Nelson's insistence on the Stupak language creates another significant problem for Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who cannot lose a single vote from his Democratic caucus and still pass the bill without picking up Republican support…

    "It is Stupak language," Nelson said. "I've said at the end of the day if it doesn't have Stupak language on abortion in it I won't vote to move it off the floor."

    I wonder if Republicans are starting to get nervous. It seems like they've becoming increasingly superfluous.
