Bart Stupak Holding Firm Against ObamaCare

What you won't see in your daily newspaper: Quotes from Congressman Bart Stupak, pro-life Democrat from Michigan, detailing how low the Left is aiming in order to pass a health care bill that most Americans do not want.
Stupak says the other eleven are coming under “enormous” political pressure from both the White House and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.). “I am a definite ‘no’ vote,” he says. “I didn’t cave. The others are having both of their arms twisted, and we’re all getting pounded by our traditional Democratic supporters, like unions.”


“This has really reached an unhealthy stage,” Stupak says. “People are threatening ethics complaints on me. On the left, they’re really stepping it up. Every day, from Rachel Maddow to the Daily Kos, it keeps coming. Does it bother me? Sure. Does it change my position? No.”
Interviewed by National Review Online, Stupak says he can't see switching parties, but it's becoming very difficult to remain a Democrat. He says something very telling:
If Obamacare passes, Stupak says, it could signal the end of any meaningful role for pro-life Democrats within their own party. “It would be very, very hard for someone who is a right-to-life Democrat to run for office,” he says. “I won’t leave the party. I’m more comfortable here and still believe in a role within it for the right-to-life cause, but this bill will make being a pro-life Democrat much more difficult. They don’t even want to debate this issue. We’ll probably have to wait until the Republicans take back the majority to fix this.”
That will happen pretty quickly ObamaCare is rammed through, but it might be 2013 before it could be repealed, once President Obama is ousted.

Congressman Stupak said one of the arguments used to justify the abortion money in the Senate bill is that abortion will help control population. Seriously!
“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.”
May God have mercy on the United States of America!
