Lipinski flips to "no" vote on Obamacare

The Stupak gang keeps growing. From John McCormack at the Weekly Standard:
Add Congressman Dan Lipinski of Illinois to the coalition of pro-life Democrats standing firmly with Bart Stupak in the fight over taxpayer-funding of abortion in the health care bill. Asked if the congressman is "open to voting for a health care bill that lacks the Stupak amendment," Lipinski's spokesman Nathaniel Zimmer replied in an email to THE WEEKLY STANDARD: "No. Congressman Lipinski will not vote for a health care bill that provides federal funding for abortion."
If it were as easy as a promise from Pelosi to strip out abortion funding, this bill would have been signed already. The trouble for Pelosi is that it's transparently obvious she cannot enforce such a promise, so she really can't make one without looking stupid. It would take promises from quite a few Senators and progressive House members to do that, which just isn't happening.

Increasingly it looks like the only way to save Obamacare is to kill it and start over.
