It’s not always easy for me to tip my hat to the left. They, by and large, have acted as if they were so wrapped up in their status as “The Majority” that they had forgotten what their jobs were; represent their Constituents on issues that matter to them…in Washington DC. Most have lost their way since taking over, but there are signs that a few of them are starting to understand the expression “a line Americans won’t cross.” And thank God for that:
A dozen House of Representatives Democrats opposed to abortion are willing to kill President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform plan unless it satisfies their demand for language barring the procedure, Representative Bart Stupak said on Thursday.
“Yes. We’re prepared to take responsibility,” Stupak said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” when asked if he and his 11 Democratic allies were willing to accept the consequences for bringing down healthcare reform over abortion.
“Let’s face it. I want to see healthcare. But we’re not going to bypass the principles of belief that we feel strongly about,” he said.
It should be enough that Americans, by huge margins, don’t want this health care nonsense to go through. So far it hasn’t been. It should be enough that Americans have had enough of those Political heroes who continue to make it clear they are more interested in saying they “got health care done” than in saying they put a stop to bad legislation we can’t afford and no one can agree on…and that the taxpayers don’t actually “want.”
It does appear that a handful of Democrats have finally decided that using Federal funds to pay for the killing of innocent human life just MAY, after all, be farther than they are willing to go in order “to get health care done.”
