Don't count on this. The so-called Moderates in the GOP have a nasty habit of folding when under pressure and the hard right $$ is going after all of them.
The guy they call a Mod. Dem. is a right winger in the Dem. party. So what they want is to try and pull a few right wing Dems. over to vote for this Abortion. Not going to happen. The problem is the GOP cares more about giving the top 2% a Tax break then they do about providing affordable healthcare to the majority of the country. Look the truth is anyone with a company Health policy is already getting a HUGE tax break because that policy is not counted as income. Everybody else pays for that in the same manner as everyone pays for the Home % deduction. As George Will said to Lawrence Odonnel last night the GOP isn't being honest with the public about any of this. They aren't because they don't agree that Healthcare is a right. They say its a privilege. Everything but gestation is a privilege to these people. You have a right to be born beyond that good luck your on your own.
The GOP needs to take a good long look at itself, unfortunately they have a major obstacle. The obstacle is that they lack the awareness necessary to do this and recognize their own craziness, because it is craziness. They are so boxed into their ideology, every little thing they do has some type of bizarre tangential connection to religion or some crazed political ideology. It's as if they have branded themselves with some kind of absolute truth and their arrogance prevents them from seeing it's bullshit. It's painful. The GOP is a cult.
I agree, the GOP is a kind of krazy kult masquerading as a political party. It's sadly like many other Reactionary political groups of the past. Fascism was also for the most part a crazy kult and it varied from one country to the next. German Fascism wasn't quite the same illness as Spanish or Itlaian Fascism. Today we have a variety of American Fascism trying to align itself with a Russian version of this disease. The two conditions / kults share some similarites but are very different in some other ways that have to do with Russian and American history and cultural differences.
