Skip to comments.Stupak - ‘You Don’t Buy Me Off’ (Remembering the dog and pony show.)
Posted on 03/22/2010 1:00:39 PM PDT by bronxville
Stupak tells us that hes disappointed that Democratic leaders have offered him legislative favors in exchange for supporting Obamacare. This shouldnt be a bill where you use hush money, says Stupak. This isnt an appropriations bill where you try to get the best projects for your state.
In the House, we need to bring equity back into the process, says Stupak. We need to cut out those sweetheart deals. If the deals in question are not removed, Stupak will vote against the bill. In the meantime, he says, my reservations are growing.
Ive spoken with a half-dozen members in the last 48 hours, and theyre all really concerned with the Senate bill, says Stupak. We all agree: Weve lost our objective with health care. Where you live should have nothing to do with the quality or cost of your coverage.
On abortion, Stupak says that the language of the health-care bill must be crystal clear. There cannot be, in any way, public funding for abortion, says Stupak. What the Nelson compromise does is recognize abortion for the first time as a benefit in a federal health plan. It mandates that at least one plan has abortion coverage. Those are drastic changes to the current law.
President Obama needs to keep current law in place, as he said he would, says Stupak. The polls show that the public doesnt want public funding for abortion. If the president really wants to work with us, he has to recognize this. And remember, Stupak adds, that the probable Christmas Eve passage of the Senate bill doesnt mean much. The House is a whole different ball game.
And then his whine - "They're ignoring me"! http://corner.nationalreview.com/post/?q=YTQ5NDQ2MTE3NWQxOWVjMTg4NWM0ZTQ0MjFjNDFkMTg=
What a dog and pony show!
I'm already sick of hearing from the press what a "masterful" job Pelosi and Obama have done with the Health Care Monstrocity.
What the State-run Media (aka the Main Stream Media) will not tell you is that if it was masterful, it was only masterful in its lies, deciet, and treachory. They used trickery, sculldruggery, bribery, threats, and lawlessness to pull this Health Care Vote out by the skin of their teeth...and the battle is still far from over.
Stupak was not padding to a democrat victory. No the EO deal was the democrat leadership's last ditch gasp to gett the votes they needed...because the vote makes clear that they did not have them before. And Stupak and those listening to him fell for it and will be forever remembered for being duped, bribed, and sashayed into supporting a bill that will use tax payer money to pay for abortion...and ruin the best health care services in the world as they are found in this nation...and enslave our children and grandchildren in debt. I do not know what all they were promised, or threatened with...but you can bet that it had a lot more to it than a rediculous Executive Order which will not stand or be used to stop it anyway.
We have a band of traitors running this country. I know of no other way to state it or express it. That is the truth about Barrack Hussein Obama and those in league with him.They have proven by their words, their deeds, and their stances...for decades...what they are, and now they have punctuated it with this God-forsaken, monstrocity social health care bill, and intend to continue punctuating it with amnesty for illegal aliens, a world-wide socialist cap and trade effort...among many other things. They are marxist ideologs who hate the free market, who hate free enterprise, who disdain the constitution and its attending, foundational principles, who reject freedom and personal responsibility, and who promise the wrteched masses that they themselves have created through dependancy, anything they think they want, so they can amass power to themselves and destroy this Republic, its liberty and way of life, and make it over into a decrepid socialist/marxist state where they and their cronies amass tyranical power unto themselves.
This cannot stand...indeed, this MUST NOT STAND. We must press forward to the elections of 2010 and throw these enemies out with such resounding clarity that it cannot be denied either here or abroad what is occurring. We must do so by turning to the constitution and the principles that are its foundation and then electing only those candidates who swear their allegiance to that constitution and those principles.
Nothing else will do.
If, as a people, we do not turn away from the course these quislings and traitors have set us on, then, as history and God are our witness, we will ultimately be left only with same course our own forefathers were compelled to take...that is, the force of arms, in the hands of citizens and citizen soldiers of this country to route these traitors out.
We are at a monumental crossroads in our nations history. We are on a path to self destruction and the loss of our freedom and way of life. But we have the opportunity to turn off that path and return to the principles that have made America free and prospered her.

Is he mentally ill?
And I’m not joking about this.
There needs to be a photochop created of Stupak, dressed as Neville Chamberlain, holding up that Executive Order and talking about “there will no taxpayer funding of abortions”.
Imvho, that would make the point rather clearly.
Yep this is all about bart!!! If nothing else, he got his other 15 minutes of fame. The last time was when he was standing behind bill clinton on the WH lawn during the impeachment proceedings. Ahhhhh, I remember it like it was yesterday.
Bart Stupak has a long way to go to restore pro-life folks’ trust in him. Not sure he will ever be able to do so.
Stupak is an evil idiot. He is a supposed “catholic” who voted for killing babies on a Sunday just before Lent to satisfy a m**lim.
Plenty of political fodder for his opponent come November.
Just a typical democrat. His vote was disappointing, but not unexpected. Don’t trust any of them, any of the time.
Why all the rehash, we know the scumbags, under what rocks they reside... traitorous scumbags all. Somebody needs to slap the excrement out of Stupak.
Benedict Arnold regretted selling out America for the rest of his life and died a broken man. He had once been a hero.
Maybe Bart will have lots of dreams of dead babies he could have saved.
Long, long ago in a land far, far away. Thanks for posting. Funny to read what he said then. Well, sad I guess.
But he didn’t really mean it.
Right on...perfect analogy.
Stupak, by the way, is history. He will lose, decisively, in November.
If he wasn’t bought off then he’s a chump on top of being a liar and an evil doer.
VOTE HIM OUT!
Of course he wasn't bought. Whores are only rented.
Better yet a Nazi.
Nice to see you posting Jeff. Thanks for the great info. I’m keeping you in my prayers.
Stupak also said that he was told that allowing goverment to fund abortions would keep health care costs lower because
there would be less kids who needed health care!
I don’t know who told him that - some say Waxman - how could this man vote for it after that...I agree with whoever asked if he was mentally ill. He has to be...
