Nelson and the Latest ‘Compromise’
A little earlier, I posted on Twitter, asking what Cecile Richards and Barbara Boxer are getting in exchange for shutting up about language that is making Bill Nelson happy. They’ll shut up, though, if it looks nothing like Stupak. And that’s what I’m hearing from the Senate — that what Nelson’s okaying is nothing like Stupak — which, frankly, Nelson warned us about in his press conference when he noted that some of his colleagues wouldn’t agree with him. And so the takeaway this morning is that Nelson’s committment to the most innocent human life has a price tag on it? A sickening, dismaying possibility.
