I found this stat on tv and thought it was significant to put up.
It is for the Stupak (D-MI) Amendment which permanently prohibits any government funds from being used to pay for abortions ... yeah you read that correctly, he is a Democrat
Party ___Yea _Nay Pres NV
Democrat __64 _103 ++0 __1
Republican _176 __0----1+) 0
TOTALS ++240 _103 _-1 __1
this makes sense to me -- after all they want to make 'sin taxes' for things like smoking, obesity, drug use, etc ... why shouldn't there be a penalty for an unwanted pregnancy? And as much as I would like to say 'except in the case of incest, rape, or danger to the mother's life' I think the prescript craze in CA for medical-marijuana shows exactly what would happen.
I'm just saying there has to be a way to make sure the system doesn't get abused.
So my question is .... who are the two chicken-shits who didn't really vote? C'mon, take a frickin' stand -- stop 'playing it safe' to save your jobs.
