Stupak and the Gang In, Points of Order Done -- I Think

4:16 PM
Stupak and his gang of six are all on hand expressing support for the bill, now that it will be accompanied by an explicit executive order by President Obama reiterating prohibition of abortion funding. By my count, this swings 6 votes to the "yea" side, leaving:

GOP -- 178 opposed, 0 supporting (I had been shorting them by 1 member earlier, my apologies)
DEM -- 213 in favor, 28 opposed, 13 undecided

Totals: 213 in favor, 206 opposed

The DEMs still need a few of the undecideds to win the day, but it passage appears all but assured.
