Bart Stupak's Strong Message to House Leadership and White House (Video)

A incredible statement coming from Michigan Democrat Congressman Bart Stupak, who says he is being pressured by the Democrat leadership in the House and the White House, to keep quiet about the "abortion language in the Senate version of the health care bill. See video below.

“They think I shouldn’t be expressing my views on this bill until they get a chance to try to sell me the language,” Stupak told in an interview on Tuesday. “Well, I don’t need anyone to sell me the language. I can read it. I’ve seen it. I’ve worked with it. I know what it says. I don’t need to have a conference with the White House. I have the legislation in front of me here.”
The Congressman objects to taxpayer abortion funding now included in the Senate bill's language. He offered his own House amendment to forbid such funding, which was quickly shredded in the Senate. You and I will fund abortions whether we like it or not. We will fund them even as our lying House and Senate tell us we will not. According to Stupak:
“A review of the Senate language indicates a dramatic shift in federal policy that would allow the federal government to subsidize insurance policies with abortion coverage,” he said.
The twist in the legislation is that the feds will "subsidize insurance policies with abortion coverage," which the criminals in the 111th insists does not provide taxpayer funding of murdering babies.

Stupak says when it gets down to the actual vote, and current law prohibiting the funding of abortion is not upheld:
"There’s 10 or 12 of us, and they only passed the bill by 3 votes, so they’re going to be short  8 to 9, maybe 6 to 8 votes. So they [Democrats] do not have the votes to pass it in the House.”
If Bernie Sanders, the socialist Senator from Vermont, could weasel $10 billion out of the criminal 111th, then the sky is the limit for Stupak, a Senator from the blighted state of Michigan.
