Stupak Casts His Vote For Abortion And Runs Like A Coward. Adds Name To Long List Of Dems Running Away.
You will not be missed, Stupak. Don’t worry though. We will watch and see if you profit from your vote to support federal funding of abortion. We will make sure you are held accountable and that the public is made aware of what your vote cost.
Republicans immediately attributed Stupak’s decision to step down as a direct consequence of his health care vote.
“After selling his soul to Nancy Pelosi, it appears that Bart Stupak finally found the courage to tell her no," said National Republican Congressional Committee communications director Ken Spain. "The political fallout over the Democrats’ government takeover of healthcare has put the political careers of many Democrats in jeopardy thanks in-part to Stupak’s decision to abandon his alleged pro-life principles."
