Nelson Says He Planned to Filibuster for Stupak All Along

Yep, before it before he was against it...
First Sen. Ben Nelson (D., Neb.) said the Cornhusker Kickback was just a "placeholder," and that he planned on securing the same deal for all states or stripping the measure from the final bill. Now he says that his "compromise" on abortion language was never meant to make it. The senator was just waiting for the bill's final pass through the Senate to swoop in and filibuster for the stronger Stupak amendment.
