Doubting John


From Talk-Radio News Service:

Republican Senator John Thune (S.D.) predicted Monday that many in his party will support an amendment to the Senate’s health care reform bill barring federal funding for abortion.

However, Thune is wary that the amendment will garner the 60 votes needed for inclusion in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

“The quesion is whether or not we can get to 60, which I think is very much in doubt. I think we can get to 50,” said Thune.
