Dems to Stupak: We need to keep abortion funding in ObamaCare because babies are too expensive
28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. - Romans 1 (NIV)These Democrats have truly given themselves over to a depraved mind. They are in actuality inventing ways of doing evil, trying to force We the People to pay for outright murder of the innocent under the force of the state. How ghoulish, how evil is it to put a price tag on a baby yet to be born and use that tag to promote killing that child? Snuffing out a life for potential fiscal solvency of a system to take over 1/6th of the US economy even though Congress has no constitutional authority to do so. This account by MI US Rep. Bart Stupak (D) is just sickening. Our country is being run by a kakistocracy. Truly. From the Corner at NRO via memeorandum: `They Just Want This Over'
Sitting in an airport, on his way home to Michigan, Rep. Bart Stupak, a pro-life Democrat, is chagrined. "They're ignoring me," he says, in a phone interview with National Review Online. "That's their strategy now. The House Democratic leaders think they have the votes to pass the Senate's health-care bill without us. At this point, there is no doubt that they've been able to peel off one or two of my twelve. And even if they don't have the votes, it's been made clear to us that they won't insert our language on the abortion issue."Stupak points out that unions are putting pressure on him and his pro-life Democrat colleagues. Unions. What happened to the days when unions were about collective bargaining and bennies? What are they doing pushing abortion? Later in the NRO article though, are these very revealing statement about where Democrats really are in their thinking, such as it is:
..."If you pass the Stupak amendment, more children will be born, and therefore it will cost us millions more. That's one of the arguments I've been hearing," Stupak says. "Money is their hang-up. Is this how we now value life in America? If money is the issue -- come on, we can find room in the budget. This is life we're talking about."More below the fold...
How is this different than a death panel? And I thought the proponents of ObamaCare denied that services were to be rationed because of cost. That bureaucrats wouldn't make life-altering decisions based on fiscal concerns. So much for that lie.
"...I'm disappointed in my colleagues who said they'd be with us and now they're not. It's almost like some right-to-life members don't want to be bothered. They just want this over."That is what comes out of an utterly polluted soul. I have said it many times - THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PRO-LIFE DEMOCRAT. I believe that now more than ever, and I include Stupak in that as well. He is sticking to his pro-life guns now because his district will eat him alive if he wavered. If anyone needs a reminder of what pro-life means to a Democrat, see for yourself (Pro-Life Bart Stupak (D-MI) FRAUD! Will Vote For Obamcare With Abortion Coverage!!! ):
If everything I want [is] in the final bill, I like everything in the bill except you have public funding for abortion, and we had a chance to run our amendment and we lost. OK, I voted my conscience, stayed true to my principles, stayed true to the beliefs of this district, could I vote for healthcare? Yes I still could. -Bart StupakHere's the kicker - the video was made after Stupak banned videotaping his public meetings! The life issue to a pro-life Democrat like Stupak is just one of many competing issues and other issues could trump the pro-life one when push comes to shove. That is not what a true pro-life politician is like. True pro-life politicians have that one issue held so close to the chest that it has outright veto power in their votes. Thus you see supposed pro-life Dems in Stupak's group peeling off. Likely the source of depravity to Stupak is fellow Dem Henry Waxman. From Nice Deb:
