Former Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich. (AP Photo) (CNSNews.com) Four years after the House passed Obamacare, former Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) told Fox News Channels Neil Cavuto Wednesday that he does not regret voting for it.
No, I dont regret the vote. Im proud of the vote. I always felt that health care should be a right, not a privilege in this country - one of the reasons why I ran for Congress. Im glad to have helped accomplish that goal, Stupak said.
Stupak, a pro-life Democrat, led a group of other pro-life Dems prior to passage of the bill, who said they would not support the measure unless it included an amendment prohibiting taxpayer funding of abortion. He supported the bill on the day of the final vote after President Barack Obama promised to sign an executive order to Stupaks liking.
Did you know that there would be these problems or that millions of Americans would have to pay more for their premiums or for that matter, maybe not have health care altogether? Cavuto asked Stupak.
Stupak is as Stupak does.
I would say “Please let a giant “D’oh” be heard from coast to coast this november when he loses re-election”, but unfortunately, he already ate his own shorts
“Bart Stupak baby killer.”
They have poll-tested, “Health-care should be a right, not a privilege”. It is the third time I have read it today from the Rats. We will hear it again and again. It must have tested well.
IIRC, Stupak was bought off by the promise that there would be no funding for abortions. ASAP, there was funding for abortions. So, I guess Stupak is a hypocrite. Either that or he’s just another Dem narcissist that will never admit a mistake. Or he was always lying that he was pro-life.
Stupak’s district and the Mn 8th are canaries in the coal mine. A deluge is coming.
The response should be that we have lost our health-care cause of Democratic party 'privilege'.
He’s got his kickback ca$h. No complaints.
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....stupak /stupid somewhere along the generational line there was a typo.
I don’t think it was much more than a week after his vote that he announced his retirement.
I wonder why he’s so chatty now?
Out of touch liberal living off special interest’s money who doesn’t have an iota what is is to live under Obama’s economy. I’d say he’s just sucking up to 0
Look at his areas of expertise at Venable and tell me he wasn’t a strategic placement.
Legislative and Government Affairs
Banking and Financial Services Regulation
Privacy and Data Security
Cosmetics and Functional Foods

What they really mean is healthcare is a right if someone else is paying for it
Health care should be a right. Unfortunately you don’t get it from drug and cut Allopaths. Allopathy only handles a minority of health problems. Their insistence that they are the only authorities on health is criminal in its scope and does the civilization a disservice. Unless you have a particular known condition with a known and proven allopathic cure (i.e. a broken leg, pneumonia, cataracts, etc.) you are better off avoiding the cut/pushers.
Stupak Does Not Regret Voting for Obamacare...
Of course not. He’s a socialist(D) and believes in the Socialist Utopia,
He puts the stupe in Stupak
I’d like to forcibly hoist his testicles to his collarbone with my boot.
If healthcare is a "right" then what will he do when we run out of money? When the "free" healthcare offered by the government is not good enough to provide people the sort of lifestyle they believe they are owed? What happens then to his "right" to free healthcare?
I am very wary of claiming anything as a "right" that could cost our neighbors hundreds of billions of dollars per year, and which could potentially bankrupt us. Rights such as freedom of speech, religion, press, and assembly cost comparatively little to protect. The "right" to healthcare could send your neighbor to the poor house.
Proud of the fact that taxpayer money is now being used to fund abortion. Let this be a lesson to everyone. There is no such thing as a pro-life Democrat.
Having congressmen and senators should be a right, not a privilege. We should not have to pay for their salaries.
His name doesn’t start with Stup for nothing.
This proves he was a fraud all along.
I wonder how many congress people are NOT cashing in. I’d bet the vast majority are out and out bought and paid for.
....a big AMEN to what you said......
He’s on my list but not yet on page one. It’s a long list.
Well put Nachum. It is CRIMINAL for Congress to exempt themselves from ANY law they pass, not just ObastardCare.
Our rights come from God. The Constitution, and the Amendments, are there to protect us from Big Government, which invariably wants to take them from us.
” I always felt that health care should be a right, not a privilege in this country.”
Given the logic displayed in this sentiment, I pose the question:
Why aren’t legal services, food, clothing, housing and transportation “a right,and free”?
Can’t spell, huh? It’s Stupid.
Why do I have to pay for a right?
“I always felt that health care should be a right, not a privilege in this country”
In that case Bart, who are you willing to FORCE to provide medical services? Are you proposing that the government should FORCE everyone to actively participate in their rights? Are you willing to force everyone to practice religeon? Are you willing to force everyone to participate in political speech? Are you willing to force everyonen to “bear arms?”
What say you Bart?
“You cannot legislate a right. If you want something to become a right, you have to do it the Constitutional way - by amendment.”
No right originates in the constitution. The constitution protects us from the infringement of our God given rights.
