Dem Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper: I Wouldn't Have Voted for Obamacare If I'd Known About HHS Regulation
Weekly Standard ^ | 2/7/12 | John McCormack

Posted on 02/07/2012 11:14:39 AM PST by Lmo56

Former Democratic congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper, a Catholic from Erie, Pennsylvania, cast a crucial vote in favor of Obamacare in 2010. She lost her seat that November in part because of her controversial support of Obamacare. But Dahlkemper said recently that she would have never voted for the health care bill had she known that the Department of Health and Human Services would require all private insurers, including Catholic charities and hospitals, to provide free coverage of contraception, sterilization procedures, and the "week-after" pill "ella" that can induce early abortions.

Kathy Dahlkemper: Gosh. Who knew this would happen? I totally screwed America, completely failed my constituents, deep-sixed the Constitution, and violated my oath of office - despite the fact everybody was screaming and demonstrating against this monstrosity at the top of their lungs. I'm "sorry". But, it's not my fault...

(kudos to Homer Simpson)

It's a new campaign strategy: ignorance.

Oh SUUUUURE you wouldn't have, you lying sack of crap. You would have goose-stepped in line behind Obozo right along with the rest of the Demosheep who couldn't WAIT to finish the job FDR started. A socialist RAT is a socialist RAT, regardless of intent.

That’s a good reason not to pass legislation before you find out what’s in it. Everyone knew that no one knew what was in the bill, but it didn’t keep them from passing it.

“Just another Democrat useful idiot... played like a fiddle by Obama and Pelosi.... Stupak and Dahlkemper - two peas in a pod!”

You can add Steve Driehaus to that list. In 2008, he beat out Steve Chabot for the First District of Ohio by claiming to be a “conservative Catholic Democrat” (didn’t know there was such a thing.) He said he wouldn’t vote for Obamacare if it included paying for abortion. Guess what? He voted for it by touting the “Stupak Amendment”. LIAR! In 2010, Steve Chabot won his seat back in a landslide. One and done!

I don’t believe that she is lying. I believe that she believes what she is saying. And what she’s saying is, it’s OK for obamacare to take everyone elses rights but they weren’t supposed to take religiouls liberties of catholics. That wasn’t in the deal.

This dimwit is the classic example of “First they came for........And then they came for me” .

Democratspeak translation.Principle has nothing to do with it. I would not have voted for it if I knew I was going to be thrown out of office.

But Dahlkemper said recently that she would have never voted for the health care bill had she known that the Department of Health and Human Services would require all private insurers

a: She is a flat out liar or b: Is a nieve fool thinking once you give the gov’t the commanding heights of the economy it will not use that power for its own purposes. All the fool needed to do is see the experiences of states like CA and NY that have done the same exact thing.

Willard has played the same card on how Gov. Duval of Mass has taken the power granted to him under RomneyCare to dictate rates and coverage to insurance companies.

Her vote against Obamacare is going to be used against her in November, so she has to run from it.

In all fairness, her bishop should give her a path to penance and redemption, and not a particularly easy one.

How about her giving an individual prayer, in church, for each and every aborted baby. One at a time.

More lib/’rat crocodile tears - they’re great for making wrong decisions and votes and then, when the truth hits home, confessing how wrong they were and how sorry they are and how awful it is and how they’ll never do it again - meanwhile the damage is done and we’re supposed to be happy they’ve seen the light - just so much cr*p......

Hey Kathy, next time you vote -- which hopefully, never, never happens -- read the bill.
