Stupak, White House Reach a Deal

Posted: Mar 21, 2010 4:10 PM
The White House has released an executive order this afternoon that they claim reaffirms restrictions on the use of federal funds for abortion.  As a result, pro-life holdout, Democrat Rep. Bart Stupak, has caved in his opposition to Obamacare.

I'm pretty saddened that an executive order was enough to convince Stupak and his fellow pro-lifers to support this bill.  It would seem to me that it's papering over the issue--Obama's executive order can be rescinded at any time.  In voting for the single largest piece of legislation since the New Deal, you paper over the issue of life?

It's clear party loyalty has become all that matters on Capitol Hill--there are no "conservative" Democrats left in Washington. 

Et tu, Stupak?
