Dem. Sen. Nelson says he’ll filibuster HCR bill unless it’s more anti-abortion

As we reported last night, Nelson is checking with the National Right to Life Committee to see if they’re okay with it. Now he’s saying he will support a filibuster. It’s bad enough having Joe Lieberman in charge of this legislation, but the National Right to Life Committee? Pro-choice women, and men, had better speak up now or the White House is going to throw them overboard without a moment’s thought. And more generally, this is what happens when you let the Republicans and conservative Dems walk all over you for 11 months on issue after issue (starting with the 40% tax cut giveaway in the stimulus package). You empower the bad people to come back for more and more and more.
