First Casualty of Government Health Care
Stupak caves to the lie that an executive order (signed by a man who said his daughters should kill his grandchildren rather than be "punished" with a baby) will in any way protect American babies from being murdered on the taxpayer's dime. Anybody who believes, after this, that Democrats can actually be pro-life is living in a fantasy land.
God help America.
UPDATE: This video is supposed to be from a meeting last year in MI. Stupak clearly says back then that if a pro-life amendment were voted on and failed, he would still vote for the health care bill. Which is exactly what he's doing now.
I wonder what the word "principles" means to politicians anyway. Getting a chance to vote for your values, some good sound bites and drama, and enough CYA efforts so that when you go ahead and vote with your party anyway your constituents don't fire you on the next election date? Men without chests, Lewis would call them.
