The Stupak amendment fails 199 to 232 (The Motion to Recommit)
Weekly Standard ^

Posted on 03/21/2010 11:14:44 PM PDT by Chet 99

The GOP is now offering its motion to recommit: the Stupak-Pitts amendment which passed the House 240 to 194 in November to ban abortion-funding. If it passes, the bill will have to go back to the Senate for approval, which means at least 25 Democrats will flip-flop on their previous vote on Stupak.

Stupak is now urging fellow members to vote it down.

Update: The Stupak amendment fails 199 to 232.

So much for Stupak’s principles. Enjoy your pieces of silver while you can!

I give STUpak in November about a 2% chance in winning his seat back.

a “stupak” will become a word in common usage meaning an ultimate spineless fraud and hypocrite.

I think this second vote will on the MTR tells us clearly which DIMS really opposed the HCR bill and which ones were shills trying to use the vote as cover for re-election. Remember, Nazi P. was letting some of them vote NO as protection in tough re-elections in November. Look at the 22 who voted with Repubs on the Motion, and you’ll see the only DIMS who are truly pro-life and anti-HCR.

"I give STUpak in November about a 2% chance in winning his seat back."

His Republican opponent set up a facebook group this afternoon and has over 11,000 members. It's gone viral. The entire nation is going to support Stupak's opponent.

Does Stupak really think his ridiculous week of “Profiles-In-Courage” posturing, followed by this utter farce of a deal, is actually going to buy him immunity with the hometown rubes?

Excellent. I post on religion forums which are swamped with fake Catholics from KOS, MoveON, CAP (and some deluded Democratic Catholics). They will all be "stupaks" from here on out.

Kind of late for that, now that you have gone out on a limb and sawed it off.

What’s the vote on the rest of it and why is it being kept such a secret at FR? I can’t find it anywhere. Maybe it’s because it’s late and I’m half asleep.

I have been “taking a stupak” when using the commode for several days now. Think that will catch on?

For so long now the so called pro life dems have been hiding behind r v wade as the “law of the land” that while “we are personally against abortion there is nothing we can do about it because it is settled law”. Yeah it is going to be settled law that every tax payer has to fund abortions. There is no chance in hell that Fauxbama is going rattle planned parent hood et al.

I thought he announced he wasn't running. Didn't I read that on FR today? He's got his airport money and might even feel that makes it all OK.

I think of the character in The Patriot who sides with the British and only realizes his damnation when the church full of people is burned down. The look on his face must be on Stupak's now.
