219-212


And a Republican motion to recommit the bill (i.e. send it back to committee) failed. Unbelievably, someone on the floor of the House yelled "Baby killer" at Bart Stupak, who is thoroughly pro-life, when Stupak asked for the defeat of the motion to recommit.

There's about to be a vote on the fix-it bill. It's another electronic vote and CNN is watching the votes come in. This is the reconciliation bill. Evidently it goes to the Senate for an up-or-down vote after that. It'll pass because this is a majority vote.

Watch your local TV. President Obama will have something to say after it's all over.

The congresscritter who yelled "baby killer" now claims he meant the bill, not Stupak.

Suuuure he did.
