Stupak Caves - No Word Yet on Delivery of Thirty Pieces of Silver
This afternoon Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) proved that a "pro-life" Democrat is only pro-life enough to get a vote during an election but not pro-life enough to cast a vote once elected. He actually switched his vote to yes on the horrendous socialized health care plan after getting a promise from President Obama. Keep in mind this is the same president who is so pro-abortion he stated he wouldn't want his daughters "punished with a baby." Also keep in mind this is the president who is so trustworthy he promised health care talks would be transparent and public.
In the end we have a "pro-life" politician voting for a health care plan that will fund abortion with funds confiscated from tax payers based on a promise from a dishonest Chicago politician.
UPDATE: Rep. Stupak does have a challenger in November, Dan Benishek. I imagine his campaign will get a lot of $30 donations after today.
UPDATE #2: How does one weigh the value of their principles against serious pork rewards for their district? I guess it comes down to how many votes one believes they might get for obtaining the pork from DC (oh yeah, and placing little or no value on your principles).
