New York’s junior Democratic senator isn’t hiding her ire (via the New York Daily News):
The White House is negotiating with conservative Michigan Rep. Bart Stupak in hopes of getting him to ease off on abortion objections that could kill health care reform.
So far, he hasn’t, so Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is mounting an online petition drive against him, and taking advantage of that opportunity to raise a little cash.
“I just can’t believe it – Representative Bart Stupak is back at it,” Gillibrand says in an e-mail appeal to supporters. “He and a dozen or so of his colleagues are trying to block health care reform by reinserting a dangerous, anti-choice provision into President Obama’s health care bill. I’m sure you were just as shocked as I was when you heard the news.”
