Stupak tells conservative news outlet White House pressuring him to keep quiet on Senate bill
Conservative news outlet CNSNews.com reported Tuesday that "Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) said the White House and the Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives have been pressuring him not to speak out on the 'compromise' abortion language in the Senate version of the health care bill.
"'They think I shouldn't be expressing my views on this bill until they get a chance to try to sell me the language,' Stupak told CNSNews.com... 'Well, I don't need anyone to sell me the language. I can read it. I've seen it. I've worked with it. I know what it says. I don't need to have a conference with the White House. I have the legislation in front of me here.'"
