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.
