Wholesale Bribery for Health Care Bill

Looks like his alleged pro-life principles weren't all that suffered when Michigan Democrat Bart Stupak folded yesterday and voted in favor of the health care bill.

This morning's cable news programs reported a handful of timely bribes to various Democratic Representatives.

Mind you, Stupak caved for an executive order that won't even have the force of law. One pundit noted that it literally has the same power, which is to say, none, in court, as a Congressional Resolution.

So much for your principles, Bart.

But going almost unnoticed on the day was a sudden, magical increase in funding for 3- count 'em, 3- airports in Stupid Stupak's district!

How marvelously convenient!

And one of Bart's Florida colleagues, the woman in whose district the Kennedy Space Center is located, just as magically saw lavish new funding for the space program appear this weekend!

What luck!

Because there just couldn't be any relationship between the federal spending bribes and the votes of these holdouts, could there?

Thus, Wonderboy and Frisco Nan not only left the Cornhusker Kickback, Louisiana Purchase, a Connecticut hospital, and other bribes in the bill, but actually added some more!

Aren't you proud of your federal government? These 436 clowns just used your federal credit card to continue spending money we don't have, to pass legislation that the majority of voters don't want.

Must be some fantastic health care bill if it requires this level of bribery, corruption and backroom dealing to get it passed with such a slim margin, eh? And that is with some House Democrats still opposing it!
