In what can only be described as the unholiest of alliances, Rep. Bart Stupak struck a “deal” with the most pro-abortion president in history, insuring passage of a health care bill containing massive federal funding of abortion. Stupak switched his vote to “yes” on the bill after the president promised to sign a meaningless executive order that does absolutely nothing to solve the abortion problems in the bill. Most of the 10 or so “right-to-life” Democrats who had previously stood with Stupak in opposition to the bill followed Stupak’s lead and switched their votes to “yes.” The final House vote was 219 to 212. Had these people remained true to their professed right-to-life beliefs and voted “no”, the bill likely would have gone down. But they sold out!
Thirty years of taxpayers being protected from paying for abortions on the federal level went down in flames with the Stupak-Obama deal.
Wisconsin’s House delegation split by party lines with Democrats Ron Kind, David Obey, Steve Kagen, Tammy Baldwin and Gwen Moore voting for the bill. Republicans Paul Ryan, Jim Sensenbrenner and Tom Petri voted against.
