As the hours have passed today, it has become clear that Bart Stupak intends to sell his soul to Obamacare . As the leader of the pro-life Democrats in Congress, he held the fate of healthcare reform (and I used that word in the loosest possible sense) in his hands. Unfortunately, but probably unsurprisingly, he has chosen poorly, and he has sold America out to this horrid bill.
We must make him pay, and fortunately, there is a way to do so.
He doesn’t have a contributions site yet, but until he does, you can send your donation to:
Benishek for Congress
802 Pentoga Trail
Crystal Falls, MI 49920
I’d like to close this by paraphrasing a famous quote by former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney that I think applies to Stupak’s situation:
You had an option, sir. You could have said, ‘I am not going to do it. This is wrong for America, and I am not going to ask Americans to pay the price.’ You had an option, sir — to say ‘no’ — and you chose to say ‘yes’ to the old attitudes and the old stories of the Democratic Party. That sir, if I may say respectfully, that is not good enough for Americans.
Bart Stupak had an option, and he sold us out. Let’s show him the consequences of his choice.
