Stupak again trying to kill HCR with abortion bs




Just like the Catholic Church, Stupak must hurt millions in order to save them.

Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., today said he and 11 other House members will not vote for the health care bill unless it includes more stringent language to prevent federal funding from going toward abortion services.

Some Dems want to remove public funding for abortions from Obama’s proposal.
“We’re not going to vote for this bill with that kind of language,” Stupak told “Good Morning America’s” George Stephanopoulos today, referring to the Senate health care bill, which includes less restrictive language than what the Democratic lawmaker proposed in the House.

Stupak said he is willing to take the criticism that will be hurled at him if he blocks the bill because of the abortion language, but that he won’t back down on his principles.

They ought to rip his committee assignments away from him and support a primary challenger. Criticism? You’re undercutting the President’s number one item on his agenda. Either you pay a huge price, or it’s open season on the President’s priorities. And lately, it’s been the latter.
