Stupak's Betrayal, the Slaughter Of the Unborn

"I'm pleased to announce we have an agreement," Bart Stupak said. Thus he swung a half-dozen Democrats to Obamacare. He claims to have done this because Obama will sign an executive order against taxpayer money going to abortions. He thanked the president and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for their work in negotiating the "deal."

House Republican Leader John Boehner pointed out that an executive order does not have the force of law.

"The law of the land trumps any executive order, which can be reversed or altered at the stroke of a pen by this or any subsequent president without any congressional approval or notice. Moreover, while an executive order can direct members of the executive branch, it cannot direct the private sector," he said. "No executive order or regulation can override a statutory mandate unless Congress passes a law that prohibits federal funding from being used in this manner."

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said the group was set to give Stupak her group's "Defender of Life" award next week, but instead "we’re going to be working hard to see who we can find to run against him.”

“In a completely cynical move, they have made this bill passable and each of them are going to pay individually," she said. "And that’s what we do. That’s what we love to do is unelect people who say they're for life and then completely betray the movement.” And, betrayal is what has happened, proving, once again, that the left should never be trusted.

Stupak was bought and paid for. U.S. Congressman Bart Stupak announced three airports in northern Michigan have received grants totaling $726,409 for airport maintenance and improvements. The funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration.

“This federal funding will help these airports better provide critical services to communities in northern Michigan,” Stupak said. “I am pleased the FAA has made this investment in our local airports and the individuals and businesses they serve.” Let's see how pleased you are after the next election.
