After voting for ObamaCare, Stupak wants $578 million in pork
By: David Freddoso

From the Sunlight Foundation, further suggestions of ObamaCare’s additional “off-book” costs — the pork it took to secure votes for passage:
A day after Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., and ten other House members compromised on their pro-life position to deliver the necessary yes-votes to pass health care reform, the “Stupak 11″ released their fiscal year 2011 earmark requests, which total more than $4.7 billion–an average of $429 million worth of earmark requests for each lawmaker.
Of the eight lawmakers whose 2010 requests were available for comparison, five requested more money this week than they did a year ago: Rep. Jerry Costello, D-Ill., Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper, D-Pa., Rep. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., Brad Ellsworth, D-Ind., Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, and Rep. Charles Wilson, D-Ohio…
Stupak requested more than $578 million in earmarks, including $125 million for a replacement lock on the Sault Ste. Marie, $25.6 million to build a federal courthouse in Marquette, Mich., $15 million to repaint the Mackinac Bridge and $800,000 to preserve the Quincy Mining Company smelter near Hancock in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

In your head
Ol Bart and a lot of others made it plain what was already obvious, there are no such thing as principles when it comes down to close partyline votes.

Stupak will get what is coming to him. Before you lefties get all uptight, I mean Obama will remove them with a veto next year. Since the Dems will not have enough votes to over rule him they will fall by the wayside. Sold out for nothing Stupak. Contemplate that when you go over the flaking bridge and past the rusty locks on your way to the old courthouse, next to the decaying factory.

Got a little set aside in the checkbook for that one.

So much for principles
This should put an end to the myth of the pro life democrat.

This should put an end the that sleazy-ass trio of socialist clowns that forced this bill on the American people by bribing the votes out of sleazy-ass congressmen like Stupak and others.
