Moments ago, Democrat Bart Stupak announced that a deal had been brokered between the President and the Democrat pro-life contingent in the House.
In exchange for their votes, the President will sign an Executive Order banning -- supposedly -- federal spending on abortions. Nancy Pelosi gets a dozen or so hard-fought votes that almost guarantee the successful passage of the Senate health care bill in the House.
Ironically, Stupak's pro-life posse of Democrats are assuredly condemning children and generations yet unborn to massive deficits, when our existing entitlement programs are already broken.
The bill uses every account gimmick known to man -- including slashing Medicare payments (really humane, Bart) and double-counting the cuts -- and invents a few new ones to create a brand new entitlement when the country is already in dire financial straits.
This bill fundamentally changes the relationship between the federal government and the people; and it does so in a despicably evil way. Health care will, there is no doubt, be wielded as a political weapon to reward and punish.
Congratulations, Bart Stupak and your so-called "Pro-Life" Democrat Caucus, you've sentenced the unborn generations of this country to misery, poverty and economic ruin. Way to stay true to your beliefs.
You aren't pro-life, you're low-lives.
