Stupak: 'We're Still Negotiating'

As House Democrats scramble to gather votes for their hotly-debated health-care bill, a few detractors are saying they could now be persuaded to change their votes. Some anti-abortion House Democrats like Michigan’s Bart Stupak are saying they would be open to reconsidering the legislation, but only if it is amended in the Senate so that it will block federal funding for abortion. “A lot of promises are made around this town,” Stupak cautioned on Good Morning America Friday. “You got to lock them down, and there has been no lock-down yet. We're still negotiating.” Ohio Democrat Marcy Kaptur also said she could be swayed if the position on abortion changes.
