Stupak Flies In The Bacon


Remember last week when Bart Stupak (D-MI) was standing by his principles and refusing to vote for the health care reform because it would provide tax money for abortions?

Remember how he kept up his stance, refusing to give in because he is pro-life and he was not going to compromise his principles?

Remember how he all of a sudden started wavering sometime around Friday or Saturday because he was working on a deal?

Remember how he all of a sudden announced that President Obama promised to release an executive order saying that the Hyde amendment was the law of the land and the health care bill could not provide for tax-payer funded abortions?

Remember how he, along with the rest of his pro-life coalition, voted for the health bill saying that he was now satisfied that tax dollars would not be used for abortions?

Remember that they were effectively the ones that put the health care vote over the top?

Finally, remember how a lot of political analysts were puzzled about this change of mind by Stupak because the executive order was essentially not worth much more than the paper it was written on?

Well, puzzle no more. Click on the title above and read the press release from the Congressman's office on the funding he got for airports in his district from Obama on Friday, about the time he decided that his conscious was being satisfied on the abortion issue.

Most importantly, remember.

I posted this somewhere on a blog about Stupak's sell out. It was a very few "pieces of silver" to sell your values for. I hope enjoys his Judas role. I doubt however that he will be remorseful and repent of what he did and return the money and retract his vote. And no he will not hang himself as did Judas. Of course his acceptance of this bribe has set his course to be hanged out to dry in November. I doubt that his constituents will allow him to forget it. At least we can hope.

Ticker, word is he has gotten the attention of some tea party groups

LomaAlta said...

Chuck, it is certain now. Obamacare and the bribes, coersion, shady deals, unconstitutional legislation, and anti-American deeds and actions mean that:
1) There are no moderate Democrats
2) There are no independent or free thinking Democrats with the courage or honesty to do anything but follow the Party line
3) It makes no sense to try and be bipartisan or cooperative with the Democrats, they are hoplessly unreasonable,
4) They will have to be thrown out of office by something like a 10 fold increase in Tea Party type activity, and
5) The Republicans ought to read the Constitution, listen to the will of the people, and act like a Party with some courage and decency again.

Now we know stupaks price for the unborn. Enjoy it while it lasts stupak, there's always a price to pay, and pay you will, in this life or the next.

Pray stupak, pray you pay in this life, because in the next, he never forgets.

Like a master at lies and deceit, Obama used his thug style of politics to ram this bill through the political “process”. Do you believe the American people are going to stand for this crap? Picture Obama standing on top of the White House giving everyone the finger - flipping America’s hard working taxpayers, the bird! This is essentially what he has done.

Why wait for November? Why wait until Obama tries to force another socialist program down our throats? Now is not the time to shrivel away. Now is the time to stand up and fight back harder then ever before. Now is the time to take the fight to them. Will you join us on a campaign to DESTROY THE MOUTHPIECE OF OBAMA'S SOCIALIST AGENDA, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA? WE ARE IN A FIGHT FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY, A FIGHT FOR OUR CHILDREN'S FUTURE. Join the fight here, http://sosssn.blogspot.com/

LomaAlta, there were at least 34 Democrats who listened to the people and voted in that manner or voted their true heart.
As far as #5 goes, it the Republicans had any knowledge of the Constitution this bill would have never survived to have been even voted on. Now they lack the guts to invoke the Byrd Rule on reconciliation which in rule 6 says that if any part of the bill will alter or effect Social Security then reconciliation can not be used. Medicare was established under the SSA and is controlled and funded through SSA thus reconciliation can not be used. I have not heard one Republican even mention that fact.
It would seem that they are all talk and no do and really don't give a rat's royal about us, the American people.
So don't hold your breath until the Republicans get guts to do what is right. They are too busy trying to figure out how to get re-elected.
Only those who know and understand the Constitution and will uphold such need to be elected . Nuff said!

Stupak held out over abortions... So the lives of unborn babies are worth exactly $726,409, it seems.

Other than illustrating the point that the man is a politician, my only contribution will be to observe that this matter must finally rest with Michigan voters. There is no denying the idiocy of the left. Brooke posted on this today; a worthwhile detour if you have the time.

Meanwhile, Meredith Vieira of NBC dazzled us with her brilliance when she said, “Democrats are using words like historic to describe the sweeping overhaul that was approved, but Republicans are saying the bill does not reflect the will of most Americans.” Should we mention, Meredith, that the sweeping overhaul also does not reflect the United States Constitution?

Finally, Roland Martin from the Comedy Channel noted, “I just don’t believe in these ridiculous names: what’s communism, and what’s socialism? People probably can’t even spell communism and socialism, much less identify it.” There is a reason why Mr. Martin works there, apparently.

These people pose a clear and present danger to the American way of life. These two —and two many millions more.

Chuck said...

LomaAlta, I agree on all points. There are either far-left or farther-left Democrats and the GOP certainly needs to grow a pair

MK, there are over a million abortions a year in the US. This works out to,less than $1 a piece

Eyes, welcome. Well put. He has essentially flipped everyone off

Presses, this is ultimately were the real fight is, the media. The media is what allows him to sneak his agenda through

Ticker, I agree. I said awhile back that I am all for the GOP saying no if they had an alternative. Saying no just to get elected is not cutting it

Brooke, agreed


but Republicans are saying the bill does not reflect the will of most Americans.

Isn't this, in fact, true?

Anonymous said...

Yes it is, Chuck … but my point is that reflecting the will of most Americans isn’t at the apex of the issue. Rather, the egregious offense is that the law is unconstitutional. That’s what the press ought to be yapping about.


Chuck said...

Your just dreaming now Mustang. I agree it certainly would be nice. Problem is the right leaning press is mostly parroting the Republicans who really don't have much to add other than "no" or the left who doesn't care about the Constitution and in fact sees it as nothing more than an impediment

Always On Watch said...

What a greedy and corrupt lot we have as so-called public servants.

Chuck said...

AOW, it's bribery. There is no other word

cube said...

I thought bribing a public official was against the law? How can this stand?

Chuck said...

Brooke, so is offering a federal job to a candidate to drop out of a race. The FBI is going to get to the Stupak case as soon as they are done investigating the job offer to Sestak. Be patient.
