The latest developments surrounding Obamacare:

House Democrats have picked up critical health reform “yes” votes from a group of anti-abortion lawmakers, including Michigan Rep. Bart Stupak, according to senior Democratic aides. Democrats believe a breakthrough with Stupak’s group – based on the promise of an executive order to be issued by President Barack Obama reinforcing a ban on federal funding for abortion – will help give them the 216-vote majority needed to pass reform on Sunday.

As I wrote at my own blog, PoliGazette earlier today, it’s likely that there are quite some Republican congressmen secretly hoping this bill will pass. After all, if it does, they can be 100% sure they’ll win reelection in November and that their party will pick up quite some seats presently occupied by Democrats.
