Skip to comments.Was Democrat Bart Stupak Bribed with Airport Deal to Get Him to Switch to "yes" on Obamacare?

Supposed pro-life Democrat Bart Stupak may well have been bribed in order to buy his vote to support Barack Obama's health care "reform." Late Sunday, meticulous research by accountability-minded bloggers first brought to light a stealthy press release from Stupak's own office this past Friday. The release announced a US Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration grant in the value of $726 409 for three airports in northern Michigan, meant to go to maintenance and improvements; Stupak represents Michigan's 1st district. Suspicions have only increased with greater fervor since Stupak represented the so-called "pro-life" bloc of Democrat holdouts who wanted greater protections against abortion provisions included in the Senate version of Obamacare when it went to the House. Yet Stupak sold out on Sunday when offered a legally meaningless "executive order" that will be overruled by judges anyway, as the pro-abortion language in the bill carries more weight. If true, Stupak sold his soul for very little; after all, at least Mary Landrieu got $300 million for her state in the Louisiana Purchase.

Ben Nelson must feel better now that he is not the whore du jour. They are both vile disgusting reprobates though and will have that stain on them for the rest of their sorry lives.
At least we all know that Bart stupak is lying when he say he’s pro life...
Every “battle plan” should have a diversionary plan designed to distract the enemy from the main point of attack.
This was Stupak’s role. Multiple hand ringing news conferences, interviews and then the agreement, an EO.
I said it months ago and now I say it with a wrenching feeling in my gut:
This “health care” issue was never about pro-life and those who tried to make it so were either obvious liars and traitors like Stupak or, collectively, the stupidest people to ever walk the planet earth.
Obama and his thugs are coming to your home to take your property and to throw you in jail if you resist and you’ve been distracted by some nonsense about pro-life.
I’m not saying pro-life is nonsense... I am saying that those who even mentioned it in the context of the Socialist Land Grab that this “health” care bill actually is... well, you know who you are. I just hope some day you realize how stupid you were.
Obama and Pelosi used “abortion” to turn your head so they could pick your pocket and take away your freedoms.
Because now you’ve got nothing. They’ll abort and they’ll pay for it with your tax dollars and you won’t be able to say sh*t about it.
Because you didn’t pay attention to the real issue when the time was right to do so.
If so (which, of course he was!) he’s a cheap whore.
Given that when I joined Daniel Benishek’s fanpage yesterday afternoon at 4:15, right after Stupak announced his dirty sell out, Benishek had 432 fans. As of this morning it’s at 11,721. I’d say Stupak may be regretting his decision more than ever.
Smoke Screen for the Real Deal...
Video Shows Stupak Never Intended to Vote Against Health Care Reform
Its official! Bart Stupak played us like a fiddle yesterday by pretending to actually care about the lives of unborn babies when actually he was going to vote for the controversial bill all along. Here he is from November, 2009 caught red handed admitting that he would support the bill no matter what.
Democrat Bart Stupak’s last bribe.
