After being the only Republican to support the healthcare reform bill in November, Rep. Joseph Cao (R-La.) voted against it Sunday, because he felt its executive order prohibiting the federal funding of abortions–a restriction brokered by an anti-abortion Dem, Rep. Bart Stupak–was not strict enough. The bill eventually passed 219-212.

I’d say DUDE. IS. COOKED.
