Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) said Sunday morning that he is close to striking a deal with the Obama administration on abortion provisions.
"We are close to getting something done," Stupak said in an interview with MSNBC.
Stupak said he engaged in talks late into the night on Saturday night.
The possible deal would focus on an executive order that would specify there would be no public funding for abortions in the healthcare bill.
"We're close but we're not there yet," Stupak said.
Democratic leaders said Sunday they have the votes on healthcare reform, but Stupak said until there is a deal struck, they don't have the votes.
Stupak said "there were eight of us" in the negotiating room with us, all of them no votes.

God help us.
And when your focus on an issue is the ‘cover’ you get for it, how genuine is your position?
eff this guy. He is gonna be the one to push this through.
I’m beginning to think Stupak is a diversion who was in the bag all along. I for one hope they all vote for it and lose it in November. Never ever trust a democrat.
Is he insane too ?
Vote no you damn fool.
You are being played.
Not everyone else is close, that darn Senate bill they can’t make changes to;
House Democratic leaders were working to head off a possible revolt among 15 lawmakers upset that House-passed increases in Medicare reimbursements for local hospitals were removed from the legislation.
The latest bill contains Senate language that several Democrats said doesnt do enough to overcome geographic disparities in Medicare reimbursements.
We need to make sure providers are reimbursed more on value than volume, said Rep. Ron Kind, D-Wis., whos undecided on how hell vote Sunday.
Stupak so badly wants to vote for Obamacare. He needs some cover though.
If Stupak falls for some executive order crap he is Judas.
Of course he is being played...
Bart Stupak is basically a one-issue candidate. He is a conventional liberal but who is very Pro-Life.
Stupak Iscariot, bringing judgment to the US for the shedding of innocent blood of the unborn, those whose organs will be removed without their permission, courtesy of 0bama and Sunstein/Sibelius, and euthanasia as soon after 40 as actuarially possible.
Stupak is lost to us or he wouldn't have come out with this statement. It's a done deal.
Executive order? What BS! I don’t see zero ever signing an executive order that would limit abortions. Besides, he can easily undo one executive order with another one.
Never trust Dims.
PRay for America
A DemocRAT is a DemocRAT. I WILL NOT pay for abortions! I WILL NOT pay for UNIONS.....and I WILL NOT pay for ILLEGALS & MINORITIES healthcare. I’m reducing my income and not investing in a damn thing.
The possible deal would focus on an executive order that would specify there would be no public funding for abortions in the healthcare bill. “
Doesn’t make sense...if Obama agreed to this, then he’d lose the support of all those who INSIST public funding be part of the bill.
The problem with Executive Orders are that they can be rescinded as quick as they’re signed.
Stupak’s 15 minutes is about to expire... anyone stupid enough to believe that a POS that enthusiastically supports infanticide will create and sign an executive order denying its funding, should be charged for their oxygen... preferably at a rate higher than he or she can afford. If Stupak votes for this POS socialist encroachment he is nothing more than a gutless, liberal scumbag, which is nothing more than confirming the obvious for most here.
