Judas was one of Jesus' 12 apostles best known for his betrayal of Jesus. Judas is the best way to describe Bart Stupak (D - MI), the Congressman who sold his vote on an executive order that doesn't have any statutory power. Stupak, beyond his anti-abortion claim, is a far-left liberal; he always supported the undocumented President Obama's health care bill, but wanted the abortion language changed. Democrats were concerned about being the one vote that passed the health care bill, but we found the turd in the punch bowl: Judas Stupak.
The process was best described by Kimberley Strassel in her WSJ article as Pelosi's sausage factory - a horrific scene, but a scene that American people witnessed first hand.
On Saturday, Pelosi didn't have the votes to pass the bill. Democrats were switching from a "no" to a "yes" vote, and vice versa. The House Speaker knew the only place where she could find the votes: the pro-life Democrats led by Bart Stupak. The health care bill had very vague language, but included in the text of the bill is that the federal government will use taxpayer dollars to fund abortions. Judas Stupak claimed to be a staunch no vote on the health care bill last week, but that was until he was cornered by the Wicked Witch of the West and the Chicago way.
Stupak was getting harassed at home; his family was threatened; he needed this to end. Obama and Pelosi likely told Stupak they could get the harassment to end, but they would need his vote in return. This is where President Obama issued his executive order, which is meaningless, something that Planned Parenthood even recognized.
Barack Obama, the most pro-choice, radical, liberal president in history, and Stupak trusted him with a piece of paper? Judas Stupak won't get what he was promised, but he will use this as political cover.
Stupak caved like plastic in heat. He will forever be known as the Congressional sellout that was the deciding vote on ObamaCare.
