Bart Stupak (D, MI) is not seeking reelection after 18 years in the house. After planning to vote against the health care bill because it will allow federal funding to pay for abortion, this guy flip flopped at the last minute, claiming that an executive order would keep the unborn safe.
Bart, I don't think you believed that at all. I think the executive order was a way you could save face while caving to the pressure. I think you know that the voters are going kick you out of office for what you did and your "retirement" is just another attempt for you to save face.
The Democrat Party Platform states, "The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay, and we oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right. "
Sorry Bart, we ain't buying it. We see your lack of integrity. This only makes you look even more spineless. Enjoy your congressional retirement package courtesy of the voters you screwed over.
Some Old, Some New, And All Great Too - *Thanks T-Bone*
